Ciavolich Fosso Cancelli Trebbiano D’Abruzzo


The incredible raw materials clearly need the time and slow exposure to oxygen to balance out and develop the great poise that this wine is known for. The palate is long, layered, and expansive, but the wine itself floats in the mouth and never feels heavy despite being a wine that we routinely show after red wines. A wine of classic proportions and production, yet with contemporary class and style.

The Ciavolichs were wool merchants from Bulgaria who built the family’s first cellar in 1853, one of the oldest wine making structures in Abruzzo. Chiara Chiavolich, the current generation owner, comes from a family of strong women. She strives to keep agricultural, wine and historical heritage intact in order to pass it on to future generations through sustainability. Ciavolich wines are made with both contemporary and ancient vinification techniques, respectful of the original variety and territory producing wines that are straightforward, clean and with deep spirit.

The Fosso Cancelli wines honor the ancient Abruzzo wine making techniques of spontaneous fermentation with a Pied du Cuve preparation in old world vessels such as terracotta, oak, and concrete and bottled without filtering. Pied du Cuve is made from the ripened grapes picked before harvest that spontaneously ferment from the indigenous yeast and then are added to the must in the amphorae or barrels.

These Trebbiano grapes are from the first and most ancient vineyard on the estate. Hand harvested in September then crushed and pressed. Spontaneous fermentation with “pied de cuve”, then aged partly in terracotta amphorae and partly in Slavonian oak barrels.
