Vineyard Management, Vinification & Ageing: I Ciacca began harvesting by Hand on 21 September 2019, picking first for our “starter” and then our top selections. In the cellar. the grapes are de-stemmed and put immediately into our concrete tanks with 20% of the stems. A starter from the same grapes already prepared by hand with entire grapes without de-stemming, is combined with the grapes to encourage a naturally spontaneous, slow fermentation at no more than 18°C lasting 20-40 days. Once fermentation is complete, the vat is closed and the wine left on the skins/stalks to rest in the cement vats for 10 months, before being pressed, having first drawn off the free-run or “flower”. Thereafter the pressed wine is allowed to rest in concrete for 3-4 months before being bottled and then kept for 24 months before release.
Awards & Tasting Notes
Pale gold. Inviting aroma of dried grasses/flowers and ripe, spicy citrus, more clementine than lemon but also a slight sweaty/smoky note. On the palate, powerful but not aggressive tannins dominate at the moment but the fruit is there to bring balance to the wine. Soft in acidity yet fresh from those tannins. A more extreme, less elegant, version of the Sotto Le Stelle. Needs food. Needs time to open in the glass but it’s a very interesting wine.Drink 2022-2025 (JH) Jancis Robinson Wines 16.5
Almost buttercup yellow. The most intense nose of all the Maturano permutations. Deep and intense hay, honey, orange, quince and hints of Martini Bianco with liquorice underneath. Dried, spicy apple and apricot. Straw and dried chamomile. Pangrattato (breadcrumbs). Deep, focused and with filigree acidic nerve running through the fruit and satin-like tannins creeping up. Bitter almond. Great precision overall. Drink 2022-2030 (WS) Jancis Robinson Wines 17++
