Winery: Lammidia [meaning an envy or bad eye in the Abruzzese dialect], was founded by childhood friends Marco Giuliani and David Dear. The winery is in Villa Celiera, a small village at 714 meters above sea level in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The 3 hectares of vines consist of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Pecorino and Pinot Noir. Dedicated to organic and biodynamic methods, the duo is constantly experimenting and learning. “Study, comparison with other winemakers, tests, experiments, errors (many), synthesized by self-criticism and common sense, have led us to current results and a path of continuous improvement.” They have designed and built specific concrete containers for use in different processes of winemaking. In the cellar, they work with terracotta amphorae, along with steel and fiberglass containers.
Philosophy: Their slogan is: Uva e basta [100% Grape]. “In all transformation processes, from the earth, to the plant, to the grape, to the wine, we try to intervene as little as possible, preserving the natural evolution of nature.”
Winemaking: Organic and biodynamic methods. Grapes were left in contact with the skin for 12 days. Fermented and refined in cement.
Tasting Notes: Red with amber highlights in colour, with mercurial aromas of candied orange, fried sage, strawberry and Brothers Johnson funk. Wild strawberry, pomegranate and sour cherry are framed by good acidity and accented by a dry, savoury finish. Not your traditional rosé, each engaging, unique sip keeps you reaching for more.
