Torano Nuovo

Torano Nuovo is in the center of an uncontaminated Nature still provided of its times, able to generate unforgettable fruits through its soils and still capable of holding the idea of labor as a gift and able to transform the passion for the land in immutable love.
The climate balances the soft and sapid influence of the sea together with the cold streams from the Gran Sasso Mountain, giving birth to a perfect condition that allows a slow and progressive ripening of the flavours and creating an ideal balance between sugars and acidity. The clay and limestone soil hosts the roots, which go down for more than several meters, the soil also provides and feeds them with a specific mineralogy that allows the wine to have complexity and longevity.

Torano Nuovo

In the most Northern part of Abruzzo, a strip of land located in between the Adriatic sea on one side and the Gran Sasso Mountain on the other, which provides the perfect microclimate to allow the vines to row and produce grapes of outstanding quality.
A combination of soil and climate factors - the clay rich soils that drain the water, the location of the vineyards exposed to a large solar arc, the different temperature range between day and night that helps the filling sugars in the grapes and the constant wind prevents bacteria and diseases to develop – all this define Torano Nuovo a town from incredible vine vocation.

Indigenous Varietals

Territorio

36 Acres of Montepulciano and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, with a little Pecorino. The growing system is mainly pergola and few rows in order to have balanced vintages each year. The leaves in the pergola protect the grapes when there is too much sun while the rows let the soil breathe when it rains a lot. The workings are almost non-existent because we want to preserve the life and the soil biodiversity. Earthworms, butterflies, spiders and fireflies which populate our soil testify the absence of fertilizers. The pergola vines are the oldest, more than 40 years old and an average yield is 90/100 quintals per hectare. Their roots can go 6 to 7 meters deep and guarantee the nourishment even in the most difficult periods. We treat the plants only with natural products: mine sulphur and copper water as whatever you give to them comes back to you: first in the grapes and then in the glass.

Fifteen hectares of indigenous varietals planted all around our winery of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Pecorino. Emidio’s vineyards (15 hectares of Pergola and rows in the Colline Teramane)

Biodynamic Farming

Emidio never used any chemicals since the beginning, as his main focus was to have an alive soil inorder to have alive wines.

Biodynamic agriculture focuses on the life forces existing in Nature activated by the universe dynamic, the life (bios) is originated by the activity of those natural forces (dynamic). When the Pepe family approached biodynamic agriculture in 2005, reading books, listening lessons and studying the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner, Sofia Pepe realised that most practices biodynamic farming involved, where already old customs at casa Pepe.

Emidio had always respected moon phases for every practices in the cellar and in the vineyards, as well he always refused the use of any chemical products and focused all his work toward the achievement of an alive and structured soil. Today we use biodynamic preparations and cover crops to reactivate the microorganisms into the soil and enrich the substance of it. We leave the vegetation spontaneously grow, thus terroir can express fully in our wines. The resulting bio-diversity allows us to have a number of yeast families which will contribute to our spontaneous fermentations, bringing several flavour profiles which are unique and indissolubly tighten to the season.

The Farm

The desire of producing healthy produces from the intact nutritional properties, coming from untreated land pushed us to go further. We thus grow an ancient variety of wheat called grano Cappelli to produce our pasta and we have live trees for our Extraversion Olive Oil. The wheat field and olive trees are in proximity of our vineyards to enrich the biodiversity and we cultivate them with the same respect for the season and the times of the Nature, exactly as we do for our wine.

Extra Virgin Oil

We cultivate indigenous olive varietals native of Abruzzo: Frantoio, Leccino e Tortiglione.
The trees surround our vineyards to create biodiversity and to contribute the increase of yeasts populations. The olives are manually harvested and cold pressed in a nearby mill with a controlled temperature system. They are taken to the mill on the same day of the harvest maintain their level of acidity and to preserve their quality intact. After a short time to decant, the extravirgin olive oil is bottled into 500 ml. Not being filtered the oil can form a slight sediment at the bottom, without the quality being compromised.

Pasta

Our pasta is the result of a new project: a field of wheat of an ancient grain varietal called “Senatore Cappelli” which has never been genetically modified, so it grows up two meters high and the yields are very low. It is grown completely biodynamic, milled whole wheat in a stone mill to conserve all the nutritional properties, then bronze extruded and dried for at least six days at low temperatures.
