PELAGO

Marche Rosso IGT

Vine variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Montepulciano 40%, Merlot 10%

First year of production:1994

Area of production: Marche, Conero

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS

Vineyard

The vineyard from which Pelago originates is situated on our estate in the municipality of Osimo, at about

150 meters above sea level, on a south‐east‐ facing hillside. The terrain, which started out as marine

formations from the Pleiocene‐Pleistocene era, consists of very deep soil, a very calcareous clay loam. The

yield is limited by very close pruning and targeted thinning, and can vary from five to six tons per hectare

according to the season.

Harvest

The grapes are picked by hand, and collected and transported in boxes. Harvesting starts at the beginning

of September with the Merlot, continues at the end of the month with the Cabernet Sauvignon, and finishes with the Monte‐ pulciano, a fairly late variety, in the second ten days in October, when the

grapes have reached peak condition with an advanced degree of phenolic ripening.

Vinification

The grapes are destalked and lightly crushed, then fermented at 27‐29°C in steel fermentation tanks, with

the cap submerged, for 14‐15 days on natural yeasts. Once the malolactic fermentation has taken place,

the wine is trans‐ ferred to 225 litre oak barrels for ageing, for a period of 14 months. After bottling,

Pelago is left to age further, in a temperature‐controlled environment, for about 12 months.

TASTING SUGGESTION

Pelago joined the list of the most sought‐after Italian wines in the world in 1997, with its first year of production, when it won the Best Red Wine trophy at the International Wine Challenge in

London. Pelago is the result of the insight of our technical group, who had the idea of mating Montepulciano with Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine which retains the style and personality of the indigenous grapes while broadening its aromatic profile and complexity by adding qualities of the Bordeaux style of wine. To maintain a high standard of quality, we chose to produce it only in those years which provided grapes suitable for a fine wine. The name Pelago, deriving from pelagos, meaning ‘sea’ in ancient Greek, suggests its marine character and the special qualities of taste and aroma which are typical of wines produced near the coast.

Serving glass

A large glass, with a fairly broad body. This allows the correct oxygenation of red wines which have had long ageing in bottle and whose tannins have taken on a softer character, developing complex tertiary aromas which will be well‐concentrated in the narrower opening of the glass.

Pairings

A perfect match for red meat, game‐birds and mature cheese.
