Notes from the producer:
"Boccadigabbia was once one of the “one hundred poderi,” or individual farms, that made up the Amministrazione Bonaparte of Civitanova, a vast agricultural estate that for over a century was an influential example of modern, rational agriculture. As in all the Amministrazione farms, in the old Boccadigabbia farmhouse, or casa colonica, one can still see today a venerable ceramic tile bearing the name of the podere and, above it, the Napoleonic coat of arms, a crowned “N.”
Boccadigabbia, located in the contrada, or district, of Castelletta di Fontespina, on the first hills that rise from the Adriatic in the direction of the medieval borgo of Civitanova Alta, covers today almost 10 hectares, all in vineyard. Its favourable southern exposure and the mild, sea-side climate have always given Boccadigabbia the reputation as an exceptional spot for viticulture."
