Vincezo Di Meo
Trebbiano, Montepulciano, Passerina, Palava
Controvento is located in Rocca San Giovanni, a small beautiful town along the Adriatic Coast of Abruzzo. The winery is led by Vincenzo (Enzo) Di Meo, whose father planted 2 hectares of vines in these sunny seaside hills after relocating from Campania. Enzo has increased the planting to five hectares. The vines, grown organically, are planted mostly in Montepulciano and Trebbiano, with a small part of Passerina, Fiano and Malvasia. In the cellar the fermentations are spontaneous and take place in steel under the careful supervision of Enzo. These wines are joyful vin de soif and express a sense of place to the sunny seaside hills from which they come from.
