Analytical data

1.3 g/l residual sugar
5.5 g/l acidity
3.7 pH

The yield is limited by very close pruning and targeted thinning and can vary from five to 5-7 tons per hectare according to the season.

The grapes are picked by hand, and collected and transported in boxes. Harvesting starts at the beginning of September with the Merlot, continues at the end of the month with the Cabernet Sauvignon, and finishes with the Montepulciano, a fairly late variety, in October, when the grapes have reached peak condition with an advanced degree of phenolic ripening.

The grapes are destalked and lightly crushed, then fermented at 27-29°C in steel fermentation tanks, with the cap submerged, for 14-15 days on natural yeasts.

Once the malolactic fermentation has taken place, the wine is transferred to 225-liter oak barrels for aging, for 14 months. After bottling, Pelago is left to age further, in a temperature-controlled environment, for about 12 months.

Winery

Pelago joined the list of the most sought-after Italian wines in the world in 1997, with its first year of production when it won the Best Red Wine trophy at the International Wine Challenge in London.

Pelago is the result of the insight of our technical group, who had the idea of mating Montepulciano with Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine that retains the style and personality of the indigenous grapes while broadening its aromatic profile and complexity by adding qualities of the Bordeaux style of wine. To maintain a high standard of quality, we chose to produce it only in those years which provided grapes suitable for a fine wine. The name Pelago, deriving from pelagos, meaning ‘sea’ in ancient Greek, suggests its marine character and the special qualities of taste and aroma which are typical of wines produced near the coast.

The vineyard from which Pelago originates is situated on our estate in the municipality of Osimo, at about 100-150 meters above sea level, on a south-east-facing hillside. The terrain, which started as marine formations from the Pleiocene-Pleistocene era, consists of very deep soil, a very deep, chalky clay loams.
