Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
Rosso Piceno is the largest DOC of the Marche region located in Central Italy. The area
is made up of hilly terrain, which is ideally suited to viticulture. The grapes come from a
vineyard located at 250 to 300 metres above sea-level. The soils are based on clay,
which combined with the sloping topography, is crucial for draining away excess soil
moisture. A Mediterranean climate is found throughout DOC Rosso Piceno, 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.
Winemaking
Each variety was vinified separately following careful selection of the clusters. The
grapes were destemmed and gently pressed to extract the free-run and pressed must.
Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures and was rested on the lees for 12
to 15 days imparting texture and complexity. The wine was blended and then gently
transferred to 400 litre French oak casks, where it was aged for 12 months.
