In Abruzzo’s vast ocean of mass-produced bulk wine, Colle Florido is a life raft.
In 2015, Andrea Ugolotti – a former sommelier working at some of Europe’s starriest restaurants – and his wife, Daniela Trolio, decided to return to her hometown in the outskirts of Pianella to establish their winery and a new life.
Certified organic and using biodynamic preparations, they farm 3ha of Montepulciano and Trebbiano vines – some of which are up to 40-years-old – planted among wild mint, barley, and dandelions on biodiverse hillside plots at 250m above sea-level.
Hand-harvested and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and wood in his tiny, converted garage, Andrea crafts charming, artisanal wines full of energy and lift.
‘Il Postino’– a flinty and textural Trebbiano bristling with tension – is a total thrill-ride to taste.
