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
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.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent 12 hours of maceration to extract the desired level of aromas
and flavours. Following a gentle pressing, the must was clarified via cold static
decanting and fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel. Ageing took
place in stainless steel for three months allow the purity of fruit and the Marche terroir to
be fully expressed.
Tasting Note
A dry, elegant and aromatic wine with fruity scents of citrus and apple complemented
by delicate floral notes. Crisp and refreshing with lovely balance, mineral tones and a
mouth-watering finish.
