Tullum DOCG is one of the smallest DOCG areas in Italy. It covers an very limited area – roughly 28 hectares in the Municipality of Tollo in the province of Chieti – and is characterized by very strict production parameters. Being situated between the Adriatic Sea and Apennines, the uniqueness of this appellation is in the mix of mild sea climate and fluctuations of the temperatures that are typical of the mountains.
