Torre dei Beati

At our estate we only grow a few types of different native grapes, which we love to turn into single-variety wines to try to make them express all the characteristics as well as possible in our area for each single vintage....

....With the name “Bianchi Grilli” we define some very limited white wine productions born from our will and pleasure to study in depth and experiment, according to our grapes' potential. Here in Italy, “avere grilli per la testa” (literally “to have crickets in one’s head”) means to have strange, creative, funny ideas in mind. But “Bianchi Grilli” are some “white crickets” that we are definitely not able to get out of our head.
We planted Trebbiano quite recently in our vineyard, with the will to honour this variety that is so important for Abruzzo's tradition.
