Vineyard Management, Vinification & Ageing: I Ciacca began harvesting by Hand on 21 September 2020, picking first for our “starter” and then our top selections. This was followed by 4 days of rain, during which , much like the rest of Lazio, Abruzzo and Campania, we had to stop picking. After a further few days to allow the ground to dry, we carried out a second selection of our organic Maturano.
Soft pressing of the grapes with stems then left to rest at low temperature to assist decantation. A single starter from the same grapes is prepared and combined with the pressed must, which has been transferred to our concrete tanks to start a naturally spontaneous, slow fermentation at no more than 18°c lasting 20+ days. The wine is then left to rest in cement vats on fine lees for 9 months, before being bottled for 12 months before release.
Awards & Tasting Notes
Intense sunflower yellow. Expressive, deep quince and hints of hay and breadcrumb with deep notes of orange, sweet candied-citrus fruit and white vermouth. A faint whiff of iron and acacia honey. Bitter orange and quince palate with a fine citric nerve that just turns up on the very end. Viscous and long, deep and substantial and with a hint of saline liquorice on the finish. Drink 2022-2030 (WS). Jancis Robinson Wines. 17

It is ready for the glass but will give interesting evolutions during its rest in the bottle. _ Amedeo Barbato, Enologist
