Antica Tenuta Pietramore Montepuliciano d’Abruzzo
Pietramore is a relatively new project that demonstrates Abruzzo’s potential for quality wine with a high level of expressiveness. The name reflects Maria’s love and respect for the soil. Maria Pia Leone commenced with her partner Massimiliano in 2011, first renting the vineyards and in 2014 purchasing the entire 70 hectare estate, and certifying organically and biodynamically in that same year. Maria connected with Massimiliano because of his knowledge and experience farming organically in the
area. The vineyards are nestled in a gorgeous area between the Maiella mountains and the Adriatic sea. The result is a unique microclimate very diverse soil. Maria works with indigenous varieties but adds personality to the wines through her creative side.
