Casa Vinicola Roxan

Roxan is located in the heart of Abruzzo, standing guard over the Pescara river valley, on a hill made up of layers of clay, sand and gravel soil. They are exposed to the air of the Gran Sasso and Majella Massifs, mitigated by air from the Adriatic seaside. The village is called Rosciano and was a natural home to the indigenous vines which, today, are cultivated in the 1,000 ha Abruzzo vineyard area. Roxan is a co-operative, founded 25 years ago by Mr Donato Ranieri and now consists of 700 producers, collectively pooling together their grapes. The wines are made by a team of professional oenologists who carefully follow a production process that stems from a unique combination of human resources, profound attachment to the land and a privileged natural environment. The typical rolling, hilly environment of the area with its unique climate and soils, together with the skills of the grape-growers and modern wine-making processes, are all key factors for attaining the high standards of their wines.

Tasting Notes

A top-class example of an increasingly fashionable Italian grape variety. Full, crisp and dry with a bouquet of flowers and pleasing aftertaste of ripe citrus fruit.

Food Matches

A beautiful accompaniment to fish and fowl, especially game.
