Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Fabulas, Italy

£13.00

The Fabulas estate is set in the simply stunning location of Majella National Park in the Italian region of Abruzzo. Located in the village of Pretoro, the Fabulas team cultivate their vines at around 600 metres above sea level, producing a range of fresh, aromatic and beautifully balanced wines. They allow sheep to roam their vineyard as they keep a check on other flora and fauna as well as providing natural fertilisation.

The national park is so-called due to the fact it centres on the Majella Mountain, a key factor that impacts the wines stylistically. Despite the fact that the vines are situated only 35 kilometres from the coast, there is little to no maritime influence, as the mountain looms overhead and protects the estate.

Legend has it that, at one time, 7 female warriors called the Majellane lived in this region. As a result, each of the 7 wines produced by Fabulas act as their homage to one of the warriors. Of particular interest is their ‘Felices’, produced from 100% Passerina. Previously stripped out and replaced with higher yielding Trebbiano across Abruzzo, Passerina is now being rediscovered and is acknowledged as one of the most exciting grape varieties in the region.
