Carminucci Belato Offida Pecorino 2021

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
Pecorino is a long-forgotten grape variety, which is making a come-back. By the mid
20th century, Pecorino was thought to be extinct, however it was rediscovered and
since the 1990s plantings have grown considerably. It is an early-ripening, thin skinned
grape, native to Central Italy, where it produces fresh, crisp mineral-driven wines with
floral notes. It produces high levels of natural sugars balanced by naturally high acidity.
Pecorino thrives at altitude and the grapes for this wine come from a vineyard located
in the DOCG Offida Pecorino, at 250 to 300 metres above sea-level with good exposure
to sunlight and cooling breezes. 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 organically; herbicides and pesticides are not used. The
grapes are manually harvested.
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.
