Carminucci Belato Offida Pecorino 2020

A fresh and richly flavoured wine with inviting floral aromas followed by lifted notes of green apple and pineapple and a tangy, zesty finish.

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. It is an early-ripening, thin skinned grape, native to Central Italy, where it produces fresh, crisp mineral-driven 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.

Tasting Note - A fresh and elegant wine with lifted notes of green apple and pineapple which lead to a crisp, dry palate with mineral tones and a tangy, fruity finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
