The red gold of Abruzzo

In the highland of Navelli, an area rich of history and traditions, grows the famous saffron, enhanced by the prestigious decoration of “Protected Designation of Origin” (PDO).

The saffron, nicknamed “the red gold of Abruzzo,” is a flower that grows in October and its wonderful colour transforms the area into a great coloured carpet, creating a beautiful open air painting.

To preserve its niche production, Cantinarte cultivates a small but high quality production of saffron in Navelli.
