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.


Vintage
The 2020 season saw optimal conditions throughout the vintage. Spring saw mild
and dry weather, which followed through into a warm summer, with enough rainfall
to allow the vine’s natural development to progress smoothly. The fruit was in
excellent condition at harvest and shows good varietal character and well-balanced
wines.


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, which combined
with the sloping topography, is crucial for draining away excess soil moisture. 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.
