OUR WINESTHE MAXIMUM EXPRESSION OF OUR LOVE FOR THE LAND OF ABRUZZO
Of all our production range, the Terra d’Aligi wines represent the maximum expression of our love for the land of Abruzzo. This love is also manifested in the names given to the wines: Tatone is a word in local dialect that means “Grandpa”, Tolos is the ancient stone structure where the shepherds would stop along the way during the transhumance. They are all refined wines produced with select grape varieties, aged according to the best times and techniques for their specific characteristics. They reflect our main objective: to produce quality wines with personality, in full respect of their typical character, appreciated in Italy and abroad, contributing to the promotion of their land of origin.
AbruzzoThe Italian region where we live
Abruzzo is the region of Italy where we live, the land of Aligi, the land of our wines. Aligi was a shepherd and the main character in “The Daughter of Iorio”, the celebrated work by Gabriele D’Annunzio, the renowned poet from Abruzzo. And this was not by chance: the deepest roots of this region are burrowed in shepherding, grown over time through the centuries old bridleways of the transhumance. Between the highest peaks of the Apennine Mountains – Gran Sasso and Maiella – and the Adriatic Sea, the bridleways unwind through the hills and valleys, traipsing around the vineyards. One of the most typical wines of Abruzzo is dedicated to them, Pecorino. Our grapes ripen in one of these valleys, Val di Sangro.
IT'S THE LAND OF ALIGI, THE LAND OF OUR WINES
CHARACTERA PASSION FOR THINGS DONE RIGHT
A passion for things done right, perfectionism that never settles for the easiest result, even with a dose of nit-picking: these have always been the distinctive traits of our wine-making family. And the same is true for our wines.
THE COMPANYTHE NEW FACE OF TRADITION
Terra d’Aligi is the mark of excellence of a company and of a family that has been making wine for generations. People describe the Spinelli clan as authentic people of Abruzzo: with our feet on the ground and our gaze towards the future. This is likely the truth. Our feet on the ground, meaning our love for the land and our in-depth knowledge of what it is capable of producing, the innate ability to sense the soil, the air, to understand the potential of a terrior. Our gaze towards the future is what drives us every day to bring our wine into the world, to spread appreciation for the immense gifts offered by this small strip of Italy.
