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
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. Pecorino is an early-ripening,
thin skinned grape, native to Central Italy, where it produces fresh, crisp mineraldriven 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.
