Santiago is an old Cuban fisherman struck by bad luck. He hasn't been fishing for 84 days. He does not give up, until on the 85th day he runs into a Marlin that, with the bait in its mouth, starts pulling Santiago's boat. Vibrant fight, blowing salt and splashes of cold water. Moment of 'Alto Mare' (deep sea), 70% Trebbiano d'Abruzzo and then Passerina, Malvasia di Candia and Fiano, originated from vineyards grown on limestone soil. Tropical fruits and Sicilian cedars roll up and down the boat.
"This wine is produced thanks to a soil rich in stones and its exposure to the sun, the sea breeze and the meticulous work of people".
These are the words on the Controvento wine labels, the words of Vincenzo Di Meo.
We are in Abruzzo, in the province of Chieti, within the protected area of "Fonte delle Farfalle". Vincenzo is the owner of 5 hectares of land, whose vines - mainly Montepulciano and Trebbiano - are little more than 18+. Apart from sun, wind and hard work, nothing else intervenes to alter the winemaking process, from the fields to the cellar, protagonist of spontaneous fermentations.
