The resurrection of the Vinum Hadrianum

The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitively settled — but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk.

I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

The wines at a glance

The rating of the wine reflects the mean value from a tasting by our jury.
The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
The wine exhibited a sensory abnormality during our tasting. This does not necessarily have to be a qualitative defect or a wine fault. In the case of a qualitative impairment, a devaluation or rejection was made depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault.

2019 “Aelio”


Abruzzo ↳ Trebbiano d'Abruzzo • Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC)

13 % alcohol


Tasted on 9 November 2020 by Werner Elflein

Intense yellow. Original and serious, slightly medicinal, earthy fragrance. Powerful and warming despite moderate alcohol content, lining the mouth with soft phenolic. Lives from the quality of the extracted tannins. Perceptible reductivity. Very good length.


2018 “Maximo”


Abruzzo ↳ Colline Teramane Montepulciano d'Abruzzo • Denominazione di origine controllata e garantita (DOCG)

14 % alcohol


Tasted on 10 November 2020 by Werner Elflein

Opaque dark red. Concentrated and fine scent of wild berries, perhaps elderberry, with a herbal-spicy component. With air increasingly floral. Warming with not excessive alcohol. Dense, juicy fruit with very present but ripe and undoubtedly high-quality tannins. Becomes more harmonious with increasing contact with air, the tannins begin to smooth out. Vital acidity. Excellent length.
