The history of Tenuta Cerulli Spinozzi wines
Tenuta Cerulli Spinozzi is located in Canzano in the province of Teramo in Abruzzo at 448 m asl, immersed in a varied and evocative landscape, where the presence of the Gran Sasso has been a point of reference for centuries.
The gaze from the side of the town facing south degrades, between hanging gardens, until it reaches the fourteenth-century walls that delimit it and where beyond, towards the Adriatic, the wonderful vineyards of the Teramo Hills unfold, in an area rich in clay, stones and sands, with ideal exposures and microclimate that allow a quality production
Owned by one of the historic noble families of the town, Tenuta Cerulli Spinozzi, it is part of the Colline Teramane Consortium, which plays an active role in the political and social life of the territory and in the protection of the only area of Controlled Origin for a Montepulciano d Abruzzo Guaranteed. The history of this company, with its 35 hectares of vineyards in the municipality of Canzano and 18 in that of Mosciano, is ancient. Born from the merger of two ancient properties, that of the Spinozzi family and that of the Cerulli Irelli, it dates back to the first half of the 1900s.
In 2003, the new cellar in Canzano was built by the brothers Vincenzo and Francesco Cerulli Irelli, but the current management is by Enrico, Vincenzo’s son, with a very clear concept and ambition, namely: to contribute to the development of Abruzzo and its people, an ambition inherited from the grandfather, implemented through a high quality production, together with the men and women who have worked within the company for generations.
