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. The fruit was in excellent condition at
harvest showing good varietal character leading to well-balanced wines.


Vineyard
The grapes come from a single vineyard 'Ciafone' which is located in the Piceno area
of the Falerio DOC, in the south of the Marche region. The vineyard is situated at an
elevation of 200 to 300 metres above sea-level, where it is gently influenced by sea
breezes from the Adriatic Sea. A Mediterranean climate is found throughout the region,
with an average annual rainfall of 800 millimetres, which falls mainly during the winter
months, building soil water reserves to nourish the vines throughout the typically hot
and dry summers. The rich clay content in the soil also helps to retain soil moisture. The
vines are planted at a density of 4,500 vines per hectare and are trained using the
simple curtain method. The vineyards are cultivated following organic principles;
herbicides and pesticides are not used and the grapes are manually harvested when
they have reached optimal ripeness.


Winemaking
The hand-picked grapes were carefully selected and each variety was vinified
separately. The fruit was macerated for 12 hours to extract aromatics and flavours. The
must was clarified through cold static decantation prior to being fermented in
temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The wine was aged in
stainless steel tanks for a minimum of three months to showcase the terroir.


Tasting Note
A crisp, elegant blend with notes of ripe, golden apple leading to tropical hints of fresh
pineapple. Dry, with lovely balance and a refreshing, mineral note on the finish.
