The Trebbiano Apollo Ausonia is made of 100% of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo grape. The soil consists of clayey and calcareous and the winemaker used to carry the alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with the asylum of indigenous yeast (pied de cuve). The Trebbiano Apollo Ausonia is then aged in bottle.
The Ausonia wine is inspired from a butterfly, rare in Italy. But among the gullies that surround this Atri winery (province of Teramo) is very common. Today the Ausonia wine has 11 hectares of vineyards (the vines are autochthonous: Trebbiano, Montepulciano, Pecorino, Cerasuolo), from which 40,000 bottles per year. The imprint is natural. And if there are still no certifications on the label, the Demeter brand will appear from the 2016 harvest for a biodynamic production in all respects. But already today the philosophy is precise and can be appreciated in wines that are a sincere expression of the territory and of the vintage. Ausonia wines are produced entirely from corporate grapes grown with the utmost respect for nature, following the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The company philosophy is to produce exclusively wines obtained from native vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts, unfiltered, uncleared and with low sulfur content.
