Italian Wine Shop
The Tollo winery was born in 1960, when Abruzzo was again depopulated and many Italians left the country to find a better future. The fathers, winemakers for generations, chose to stay in the vineyards and give life to the Tollo winery. In the 1960s and 1970s, the winery was a protagonist of the Abruzzo fermentation climate. It played an active role in this sector and contributed to a radical change in the regional viticultural geography. The contribution of the winery to the production regulation process, to the initiatives to protect typical regional wines and to the programs to improve the quality of the grapes and vinification techniques is of great importance. Today, Cantina Tollo is one of the most important and consolidated realities of the Italian wine sector, exporting 35% of its production to all countries of the European Union, North America and the Far East. The aging botanicals in Tollo consist of barriques and large oak barrels from Slavonia, to which are added the vitrified cement tanks, now considered the best for refining.
