Passerina is an ancient and traditional grape variety from the Marche wine region of Central Italy, where it produces wines with an intense minerality. The berry's skin is relatively thick and this Italian variety produces high levels of natural sugars balanced by naturally high acidity. The grapes come from a vineyard located at 250 to 300 metres above sea-level. The soil is rich in minerals and clay. A Mediterranean climate is found throughout the region, with average annual rainfall of 800 millimetres, mainly falling during the winter months, which builds water reserves in the soils, to nourish the vines throughout the typically hot and dry summers. The vineyards are cultivated following organic principles, herbicides and pesticides are not used. The grapes are manually harvested when they have reached optimal ripeness.

Established by Giovanni Carminucci in 1928, the Carminucci estate is now run by the founder's son, Piero, who produces high quality wines from organically farmed grapes. The 45 hectares of vines are grown between the municipalities of Offida and
Grottammare and within famous, historic DOC territories of Rosso Piceno, Rosso Piceno Superiore, Falerio, Passerina and Pecorino DOCG. Yields are kept intentionally low, which combined with a modern approach in the winery, results in a sought-after
collection of wines that truly reflect the grape and the terroir. The wines are highly acclaimed in Italy, winning multiple Italian awards and offer outstanding value for money.
