When he was just twenty years old, the enlightening experience of summer harvest in the Champagne region, in contact with the recoltants, definitely directed him towards his way. In 1981, he founded the company and began producing and selling Trebbiano d’Abruzzo and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. In 1983, he already produced 9,000 bottles. In 1984, Villa Gemma Rosso was first produced, which is a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo obtained from the best grapes of San Martino, with which Gianni experienced a new concept of making wine and found his own style.
He constantly studied the latest techniques and specificities of Abruzzo; he selected the oldest and least productive vineyards; cared with the same obsession for his “two cellars” – as he liked to repeat often: the concrete cellar, and the other, the most important one, under the sky: the vineyard.
In 1987, Gianni met Marina Cvetic: their meeting gave birth to a private and professional bond intended to give the company an international breakthrough and bring the message of the excellence of Abruzzo around the world.
