This is a tart, spritzy rosé with singing acid that simply bursts with underripe plums and raspberries from Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani of Lammidia who tend a small estate in eastern Italy's Abruzzo.
Vinification: A blend of Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Pecorino, Passerina, and Malvasia hand-harvested from 25 year-old vines grown in clay and limestone soils. The grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation (ambient yeasts; no temp. control) in stainless steel before an extended aging also in tank before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no additional SO2. 10.5%ABV
The Producer: Lammidia
"We are Davide and Marco. We’ve been friends since 3 years old, and although we took different roads at times, we found each other again during college. Since then, we began our journey into the world of wine.
Our wines are made simply by spontaneously fermented grapes. We don’t add anything else, no clarifying agents or filtration. Residual lees and grape skins are indicators of a genuine and natural process, necessary to keep the wines alive.
We’re in a process of constant research, taking inspiration from many winemakers that we’ve met on our journey and with whom we continue to have a dialog about how to cultive, ferment, conserve and age wines. They are a source through which we synthesize our experience, which is in constant evolution."
