The vineyard giving life to Pelago is situated in the municipality of Osimo, on a hill approximately 100-150 meters above sea level, facing southeast. The soil, dating back to formations of the Plio-Pleistocene marine era, is very deep, loamy-clayey, decidedly chalky.
Yield per Hectare:
Contained through very short pruning and targeted thinning, it may vary according to the seasons, ranging from 50 to 70 quintals per hectare.
It is carried out by hand, with the grapes collected and transported in crates. It begins in early September for Merlot, continues at the end of the same month with Cabernet Sauvignon, and concludes with Montepulciano, a rather late-ripening grape, in October, when the grapes have reached an excellent and advanced degree of phenolic ripeness.
After destemming and slight pressing, the grapes ferment at a controlled temperature of 27-29°C in stainless steel fermenters, submerged cap, for 14-15 days using indigenous yeasts. After malolactic fermentation, the wine undergoes the aging phase.
In 225-liter oak barrels for a period of 14 months. After bottling, Pelago further ages in a temperature-controlled environment for about 12 months.
Color: Impenetrable ruby red, with purple reflections.
Aroma: Intense, clean, and refined aromas of coffee, black pepper, licorice, and tobacco, with a background of grass and hay typical of Cabernet.
Palate: In the mouth, there are notes of berries, vanilla, and mineral flavors; important but evolved tannins, with gustatory sensations in harmony with the elegance of this wine.
Pairs perfectly with red meats, feathered game, and aged cheeses.
Large-sized glass with a rather wide body to allow proper oxygenation of red wines aged for a long time in the bottle and with softened tannins.
Serving Temperature: 16-18°C
