Producer
The Mancini family have made wine here for five generations, and current owner Luigi Mancini’s fascination is with more unusual grape varieties: either the Pinot Noir brought to this particular part of the northern Marches by the French two hundred years ago, or local treasures like Ancellotta and Albanella. In clay-limestone soil, with temperatures moderated by the Adriatic, these varieties thrive alongside the more mainstream Sangiovese and Montepulciano.

Vineyard
The soil of calcareous sandstone and cool microclimate along this elevated section of the Adriatic coast has proven to be ideal for the cultivation of Pinot Noir. This single vineyard is situated five hundred metres from the coast at an altitude of 100-150 metres above sea level. Grapes were hand-harvested into 15kg baskets, and immediately placed in a mobile cooling cellar for transport to the winery.

Winery
Grapes were destemmed the next morning at a temperature of 9°C. This was followed by a cold maceration that lasted around seven days. Fermentation took place at up to 30oC with a combination of délestage, pumping over and punch downs for around fifteen days. A complete malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrel, and the wine then spent twelve months in French oak barrels (half new) on lees with monthly lees stirring.

Taste
Rich, resonant Pinot Noir that marries the brightness and elegance of the variety with a blackberry depth rarely encountered outside Burgundy. Purity and concentration combine to give a wine of exceptional vividness.
