The pride of Tenuta Spinelli is without a doubt the territory of excellence where its Pecorino is born.
Following towards Castignano in the direction of Rotella, looking up, you can see a mountain, the Ascension. At its feet stands a literally surreal place: Montemisio.
A place full of history. Here stood one of the largest woods of Ascension and thanks to them could be placed, at the time, the town of Rotella. Following the decision to build the adriatic highway, most of the wonderful oaks that lived there were dismantled. All but one that, thanks to the boldness of the local farmers, today shads the marvelous sanctuary.
At the doors of the sanctuary, Simone Spinelli, young, ambitious and full of self-confidence and a native vine, decides to plant a few hectares of Pecorino. It was his luck!
The nature of the land that welcomes the vineyard is reflected in the Pecorino wine. The red earth, stony and fresh, the altitude (550 m above sea level), the thermal excursion to which the place is subjected and perhaps a magical atmosphere can be found in Artemisia, one of the founders of the school full and grit of Pecorino.
Simone gives to his Pecorino the name of Artemisia in memory of Artemis, goddess of hunting and fields, since centuries ago in this sacred place there was a pagan temple dedicated to the goddess.
