Owner description: Situata sulle colline teatine che guardano al mare Adriatico, l'azienda agricola Maligni si estende nei comuni di Chieti e di Torrevecchia Teatina. Dopo piu di cinque generazioni la passione per la vite ed il vino e arrivata nel 2009 a concretizzarsi nel fondare l'azienda agricola Maligni che si affianca alla pre esistente azienda agricola Savini Maria Assunta ed ancor prima all'azienda agricola Tomei. Il nome Maligni e un appellativo che da oltre quattro generazioni identifica la famiglia Tomei e, secondo le ricerche effettuate, sarebbe da additare ad un contenzioso avvenuto tra l'allora pater familias Pasquale Tomei ed il parroco del luogo. Oggi l'azienda agricola Maligni si estende su una superficie di dieci ettari di vigneti, coltivati principalmente con le varieta Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Pecorino, Cococciola che, per la zona di produzione particolarmente vocata, si distinguono per l'ottima qualita. La nostra cantina e il risultato di una felice simbiosi tra tradizione ed innovazione, per questo l'Arte del nostro lavoro consiste nel trasformare i preziosi doni della natura in vini eccellenti, avendo sempre un occhio di riguardo per l'ambiente e per la qualita. Il fascino di un ambiente naturale, il piacere dell'ospitalita mediterranea, in un locale storico con spazi luminosi per la rappresentanza e le degustazioni. Cantine Maligni, la qualita non ha compromessi.

Our time together with Fabio was one absolutely out of the ordinary. He is a great person and a wonderful maker of beautiful artisan wine. Full of warmth, telling us all about the process and history of his winery.
Our visit on a rainy day in Abruzzo got filled with the beautiful aromas of pecorino and montepulciano!!
His wines and place gets our highest ratings and we cant wait to come back in December to taste the new wines!

Well, I won't say too much since I would prefer that you drive there yourself and meet Fabio and his lovely lady. You will get an inkling, or more, of the passion and intelligence that produces the wine you will love to taste. Pine Nuts, I could not pick out the pine tree that produces the lovely pine nut we enjoy for pesto... and tried to describe, and yes, they cracked open a pine cone and the nut and I have smuggled them back to NJ where maybe I can grow the trees from Chieti? I am only relating this so you can imagine how relaxed in their company you will be so that you can even discuss edible trees :-)

We visited here as a family recently and phoned in the morning to check it was ok to come and do the wine tasting. Fabio the vineyard owner was lovely and told us all about each of the wines, how they are made etc, he was very informative!
We got to try white, rose and red wines, they were all really good and we bought some of each.

Would definitely recommend Fabios winery to anyone who is thinking of visiting!

Wine tasting at Cantine Maligni was an amazing experience!! It was a very rainy day and we couldn't visit the vineyard but we learned the history of the "Maligni" family- courtesy of Fabio & Corrado! The wines were amazing! We did not leave empty handed!!

We popped in at Maligni without appointment and were warmly welcomed by Fabio, his brother and Aramis (the dog :). Such gentle people, we felt as if we were visiting friends... Fabio dedicated a lot of his time to show us his winery, the vines, along with captivating stories on how it all began. It's clear that he has a real passion for what he does. He generously took us through the tasting of the wines he produces. We loved most the Maia / Pecorino (white) and Mastro / Montepulciano (red), very exquisite, velvety wines. Just wish we could have brought home a lot more :). His property is in a beautiful country location and not far from Pescara airport. Absolutely worth the visit and the tasting! Thank you all, we hope to come back some time!
