I’m one of the three sons of Domenico Pasetti, the owner of the Pasetti Company. My brother, my sister and I have different roles in the Winery: Francesca Rachele is in charge of the administration, Davide, who is an oenologist, is in charge of the wine production and I’m in charge of the export and international visibility. Pasetti is a 5 generations long family business. It is one of the most known and stable wineries in Abruzzo and Italy. All of our vineyards (about 80 hectares) are entirely located in the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National park, up to 550 meters above sea level. We are focused on Abruzzo native varieties such as Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Passerina and Pecorino. Our wines, including the well-known Testarossa, are currently exported in the majority of countries around the world.
