Aromas of pear, yellow apple, shaved fennel, and fresh sage. Ripe yet still fresh on the palate, the wine shows green and yellow orchard fruits with zesty acidity and a persistent undercurrent of saline minerals. Lemon, yellow apple, fresh apricot, and yellow plum fruit, salty calcareous minerals, rubbed sage, and fresh peat linger on wine’s long finish.

REGION Italy > Marche > Offida
GRAPE(S) Pecorino
ABV 13%


100% Pecorino grown in vineyards sitting at 300 metres above sea level. The soil in the vineyards is ‘San Lazzaro’, a medium textured clay-sand, medium textured lava-clay.

Vines are cane pruned with 3,500 plants per ha and yield is just 55hl-ha. Grapes are hand-picked in late August and destemmed before undergoing a short (12-24 hours) period of cold maceration under a blanket of nitrogen (no sulfur).

After crushing, the juice undergoes a cool ferment for 20-25 days in stainless steel. An additional 6 months aging in concrete tanks on the fine lees helps to give body and mouthfeel.  

Silvano and his family are committed to the autochthonous grapes of the Marche.
