The Controguerra area lends its name to a unique appellation. On the gentle slopes of the Teramo hills, the breeze rises from the sea and blends with cold currents from the mountains near the vineyards. This land gives rise to great wines, directly conveying this interaction, with its alternating multifaceted nuances and distinctive flavours.
A terroir shaped
between the sea
and the mountains
The territory is influenced by its closeness to the Adriatic Sea and the presence of the Gran Sasso massif. The special microclimate of this environment encourages slow ripening of the grapes and the formation of an ideal sugar balance. Clayey-calcareous soil nourish the roots of flavours and aromas that the experienced winemakers at Lidia&Amato transform, thanks to their knowledge and specific activities in the vineyards and wine cellar.
The Controguerra DOC area and the Teramo hills are a natural treasure that is unique in the surrounding area. Such awareness has led Lidia&Amato to develop a working culture in the vineyards and wine cellar featuring the careful use of resources and agricultural practices. Protecting the territory lies at the heart of implementing an idea for the future.
