In 1793, Raffaele Castorani – a noted eye surgeon and inventor of cataract surgery – married Adelina Ruggeri De' Capobianchi, whose family gave a hunting estate in Abruzzo as a dowry. Of course, the estate included vineyards. Over the centuries, ownership changed hands several times, the estate was broken up into separate parcels, and came close to disappearing altogether, until in 1999, a group of friends from the Trulli and Cavuto families came together to reconstitute the property and revive vineyards that were at the time lost in an obscure sea of bulk wine. Under the guidance of Jutto Trulli, the vineyards were converted to organic farming, and a new winery built to improve the standard of winemaking. In Abruzzo, the Montepulciano grape is king, and the Cadetto cuvee is Podere Castorani’s entre to their portfolio of solidly built, savory Montepulcianos. The nose is a rich bundle of cherries and blackberries, with touches of violets and baker’s chocolate. Study tannins define the palate with a core of crushed berries and tarragon, sage and oregano at the core and a lingering note of chocolate. A wine for all seasons and a variety of hearty dishes
