Belato Pecorino, Carminucci

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.

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.

The Belato Pecorino is a fresh and elegant wine with lifted notes of green apple, peach and pineapple which lead to a crisp, dry palate with mineral tones and a tangy, apricot and peach fruit finish.
