Coming back in his Landto dedicate himself to the production of a top rank wine was the dream accompanying Gaetano Lamaletto while he left Abruzzo looking for wealth in Venezuela. Years later, as a well-known businessman, Gaetano creates on the hills near mount Maiella his company. IL FEUDUCCIO DI S. MARIA D'ORNI.
A family living on tradition and innovation: Gaetano Lamaletto, his wife Maria, their daughter Laura (mother of four) with her husband Paolo create a new project: Il Feuduccio di Santa Maria d’Orni.
“Il Feuduccio di Santa Maria d’Orni” lies in Orsogna (Chieti) and is located in one of the most beautiful and intact landscape imaginable, in a show of hills that give birth to this enchanting landscape between Maiella and Adriatic Sea.
The cellar is totally carved in the rock and digs deep through five levels, each one is 1500 meters large. The heart of the work, high vinification, cellar and ageing bottle room lie 14 metres under the vineyard. The three access tunnels are trimmered by local sandstone, covered by hand made bricks. Two levels above the cellar there’s the Tasting Room.
Pruning, thinning, grapes selection and other fine checkings are the key for producing top quality grapes.
For Gaetano “Il Feuduccio” wants to be a homage to his land, to the future generations. the only soil where he finds the flavour of his people.
