In central Italy were found fossil records of vine shoots dating back two million years ago, but it is only from the late Bronze Age that we come to traces of a real agricultural activity, aimed at the cultivation of the vine. In Abruzzo, the earliest evidence of wine production is located in pre-Roman times, with the pottery of funeral artefacts come to light in the monumental necropolis around L'Aquila. Numerous, then, the findings of the Roman period, which attest to the diffusion - and the popularity - of wine, also mentioned in the works of historians and in the poets' verses. "It prepares the wine the hearts and the passion makes them more ready", writes Publio Ovidio Nasone, the famous elegiac of Sulmona origin. The wines produced in the territory are praised in the De Agricoltura by Marco Porcio Catone and even Hannibal - tells the Greek historian Polibio - lingering for a long time in Val Vibrata (Teramo), is seduced by local wine.More about the Winery
