Rosso Piceno is the largest DOC of the Marche region located in Central Italy. The area is made up of hilly terrain, which is ideally suited to viticulture. The Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes come 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. A Mediterranean climate is found throughout DOC Rosso Piceno, 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 following organic principles; herbicides and pesticides are not used, which allows for the full expression of the terroir. The grapes are manually harvested when they have reached optimal ripeness.

Each variety was vinified separately following careful selection of the clusters and destemming of the grapes. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures and underwent maceration for eight to 10 days imparting colour, flavour and gentle tannins. After a gentle pressing, the wine was blended, then 80% was gently transferred to stainless steel tanks to retain the pure fruit flavour, while 20% was matured in French oak of second use to impart delicate complexity.

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.
