Lammidia ‘Horus’ Vino Bianco 2019

Estate: Founded by childhood friends Marco Giuliani and Davide Gentile, Lammidia means envy or bad eye in the Abruzzese dialect. Their 3 hectares of vines sit 714 meters above sea level in Villa Celiera, a small village in the Pescara region of Abruzzo. 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: From a 1 hectare vineyard with vines 25 years in average age, with clay/limestone soils. Hand-harvested, destemmed, overnight maceration with the skins, spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel, aged in stainless steel, unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2.

Tasting Notes: Pineapple, peach, green apple, basil, lemon, orange, nutty trace, drizzle of honey accented by tangy acidity and gauzy green tea tannins. Lemon zest, nectarine, and thyme infuse the crisp mineral finish. Lithe, electric.
