At the young age of 22, Federica Morricone took control of her grandfather’s wine estate nestled in the gorgeous Teramo hills and overlooking the green Adriatic Sea. Full of ambition and passion for wine, the young entrepreneur has grown Villa Medoro to one of the most awarded wineries in the region.
Federica’s grandfather, Mr. Luigi Della Loggia, purchased the land more than 50 years ago when he discovered the land was perfectly suited for prime viticulture.
Today, Villa Medoro encompasses more than 250 hectares, 107 of which are home to the well-looked after vines. Nine times winner of the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri Awards, the highly-regarded wine magazine cites Federica’s “entrepreneurial verve and skills” as the reason for the winery’s acclaim and international success.
Not afraid to stand by the traditional ways of producing wine, Federico is passionate about producing wine known for its quality, not its quantity. Villa Medoro’s vines are treated with the farm’s traditional method using pergola or espalier techniques.
This combination blends ancient regional traditions and modern techniques to capture the truest expression of this great region.
Along with accolades like the Tre Bicchieri from Gambero, Villa Medoro has also receiving 3 Stars Veronelli and 5 Grappoli Duemilavini A.I.S. (Italian Association of Sommeliers), 92+ points from Robert Parker and 90 points from Wine Spectator.
