For over thirty years the company has been run by my father Elio and my uncle Antonio. From that "special" export experience in Germany, the two inseparable Monti brothers understood that this would be the road to follow. They worked a great deal on various tasks: they built the new winery on the top of Pignotto hill where it is still today, they planted vineyards on all the land owned by the family, but above all, immediately, they decided that the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Monti, the one with the head of the dog, had to be the top, like the one always made in the family and for the family, always tied to tradition, always respectful of the territory from which it came and of which it wanted to be fruit and synthesis.
