The Cococciola is one of the vines which origin has not been precisely determined yet. There are no documents about except rare mentions of Viala and Vermorel (1909), which tell that it is a native plant of Abruzzo. The farming system is the bower of Abruzzo and the yield per hectare is 50 quintals. The wine shows a straw yellow colour. The nose reveals a delicate bouquet with hints of white flowers in spring and obvious feelings of citrus, grapefruit and lemon, which express freshness and fragrance. A delicate flavour characterizes the phase of taste of this wine that is pleasant and intriguing. The finish is very persistent.

The producer

Situated in the tiny village of Crecchio a small town between the Majella mountain and the Adriatic sea, at the shadow of the ancient castle in the Abruzzo region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 2007. In this environment two young brothers, Antonio and Luigi Ulisse, wanted to ensure continuity to the family farm started from their grandfather Antonio but with their mind focused on the future. Along with the expert guidance of visionary winemaker Vittorio Festa, one of Abruzzo’s most esteemed winemaking talents and the two visionary brothers Antonio and Luigi, Tenuta Ulisse has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a standard winemaking holding pattern. Tenuta Ulisse widely regarded as one of Italy's most advanced and innovative estates has aggressively dived into the enormous potential and maximum expressions of Abruzzo's unique terroir and grape varietals and has positioned itself as one of then most important wineries in Abruzzo. Tenuta Ulisse presents itself as a modern, dynamic winery which values into a new era where it blends modern winemaking technology and the energetic lifestyle of contemporary life expressing the potential and character of the native grapes of Abruzzo. Today Tenuta Ulisse is considered the symbol of the oenological renaissance in Abruzzo.
