De Sterlich Montepulciano d'Abruzzo


Tenuta De Sterlich is a small biodynamic winery nestled between the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso Mountain chain in the Appenine Mountains.  The winery makes elegant wines reflecting, as purely as possible, their pristine terroir which has been farmed biodynamically since the winery’s inception.

The winery was founded in 2017 by two friends, Roberto Fracassa and Alessandro Massacesi, from the nearby city of Teramo. Roberto Fracassa is from a family well-known for their cured meats (Salumeria Fracassa). Roberto’s father built the family business from humble beginnings into one of the most respected salumerias of Abruzzo. The two friends purchased a pristine 23-hectare hillside containing 19 hectares of vineyard along with olive trees and forest.
