CAVALLO DI BATTAGLIA - ABRUZZO
Cavallo di Battaglia means battle horse or pièce de resistance. The indigenous varietals of Pecorino and Montepulciano showcase the rustic soulful region of Abruzzo in central Italy that is bordered by the Adriatic Sea.
Tenuta del Priore is located in the beautiful countryside of Collecorvino in the province of Pescara in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The winery was started by three Mazzocchetti cousins back in 1973 when they returned to their native Abruzzo region. The cousins left prosperous careers in Rome to farm the land and produce amazing wine.
Fabrizio Mazzoccheti, son of founder Antonio, now guides the winery with the precise and discerning use of his enology degree, vast lifelong winemaking and viticulture experience and his passion for the native varietals and land. His remarkable wife, Giovanna, runs the winery administration with great attention to detail and determination. Together they build on their family’s proud Abruzzi tradition.
Anna and Mario travel to Tenuta del Priore to work with Fabrizio and Giovanna to produce these amazing quality value driven wines. Pecorino and Montepulciano produce the best wines in the abruzzo region.
