Rosso Piceno is made up of hilly terrain, ideally suited to viticulture. The hand-harvested grapes for Carminucci's Naumakos Rosso are from a vineyard located at 250 to 300 metres above sea-level. The soils are based on clay, which combined with the sloping topography, is crucial for draining away excess soil moisture and ensuring a balanced ripening. A Mediterranean climate, with average annual rainfall of 800 millimetres, mainly falling during the winter months, builds water reserves in the soils, to nourish the vines throughout the typically hot and dry summers. The vineyards are cultivated following organic principles; herbicides and pesticides are not used. Each variety was vinified separately following careful selection and fermentation took place at controlled temperatures and was rested on the lees for 12 to 15 days imparting texture and complexity. The wine was blended and then gently transferred to 400 litre French oak casks, where it was aged for 12 months.
Pairs beautifully with: Grilled or roasted meats, or smoky root vegetables from the BBQ.
Cheese pairing: Cheddar, Comte or Pecorino.
Wine contains sulphites.
