Torre Zambra Winery, on the Hills of Villamagna

Perched on the magnificent hills of Villamagna, the Torre Zambra Estate is one of the five wineries that produce wines in Villamagna DOC. The estate was initially owned by the Zambra Family and had a lookout tower named “Torre Zambra” on it. In 1961, Laurentino De Cerchio established the winery and began the production of native vines in Villamagna territory, a hilly region suitable for the production of Montepulciano grapes. Today, Laurentino’s nephew, Federico De Cerchio manages all the operations of the winery with the same commitment as his ancestors. Torre Zambra Winery has brought many changes into wine production phases, keeping in mind the importance of the environment. Federico even introduced an online portal in 2013 to make small Italian winegrowers known to the world.

Perfect Conditions for Maturation

The winery values the native wines of Villamagna and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC regions. It cultivates a wide range of grapes, including Montepulciano, Pecorino, Passerina and Trebbiano. With great passion and dedication towards family winemaking business, the owner uses both traditional and modern methods of farming in the vineyards. They store their wines in large cement tanks for perfect aging and refine some of their vintages in tonneaux (550 liters) and barriques (225 liters).

Southern Exposure Produces Optimally Ripe Grapes

In the Villamagna DOC region, most vineyards are exposed to South and South-East, enjoying optimum sunlight and humus-rich soil. These two factors help in the production of best-quality grapes. They get the oldest vines, almost 50 years old, from the smallest vineyard of 0.4 hectares in Brune Rosse vineyard. The youngest vineyard – the Madia vineyard, produces top-class Cerasuolo D’abruzzo DOC wines.
