Vini d’Altura
at Campo Imperatore

Wines transformed
with the Transhumance
with a taste of high mountains

June Friday 17/Sunday 19, 2022

Pure air, snowy peaks
and extreme weather conditions.
Freshness... Minerality... Elegance... Persistence...

transhumant 
/tɹænzˈhjuːmənt/

Borrowed from French transhumance, ultimately from Latin trans (“across, beyond”) + humus (“ground”).

Which is moving into the scope of the seasonal movement of people, with their cattle or other grazing animals, to new pastures which may be quite far away in terms of distance and altitude...

(dictionary by Oxford Languages)

The magic of winter transformation
of wine under the snow

"Thanks to an unrepeatable combination of environmental conditions, geological and microclimatic characteristics.

This is the framework in which our original wine aging process takes place.

Inspired by an ancient pastoral tradition, driven by passion and thanks to some technical solutions perfected over time, the Vini d'Altura are able to synthesize the purity of the high mountains "

Bruno Carpitella

Where

In Abruzzo, in the extraordinary environmental framework offered by the highest areas of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park

When

Every year, Nature decides: we make sure that the bottles remain at high altitude from the first big snowfall until the melting of snow is complete

Why

The permanence in extreme conditions allows the wines to acquire properties impossible to obtain with traditional aging methods
