Tasting Notes

Ciù Ciù was founded in 1970 by Natalino Bartolomei and Anna Maria Iobbi, just a few kilometers from the legendary medieval town of Offida. Today, brothers Massimiliano and Walter Bartolomei continue their father Natalino’s fascinating work, instilled with his experience and wisdom.

The estate, which contains 130 hectares of vineyard, is situated in the middle of the production area of Rosso Piceno Superiore. The rolling hills of Offida provide both picturesque vistas and multiple slopes and microclimates. Fresh sea breezes from the east flow through the vineyards, keeping vines clean, and wines fresh. Wines are certified organic & certified vegan.


Critical Praise

Each case contains 4 bottles of each of the following wines:

Whites:
Oris Falerio Marche IGP 2018, $16.95
Oris is a blend of Trebbiano, Pecorino, and Passerina, grown in the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province at 300m. This was native fermented in stainless, and left to settle for 4 months. Brilliant, pale yellow with green hues, this wine has an enticing tropical fruit driven nose, with notes of honeysuckle, lychee, peach pit, spearmint, fresh almonds and a touch of white pepper.

Merlettaie Pecorino Offida DOCG 2019, $22.95
‘Merlettaie’ means lace, and the name of this wine pays homage to the lace workers of Offida who weave the fine threads so precisely and quickly. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin, a similarity shared with Pecorino. Confined for decades onto the bare and steep slopes of the Piceno Apennines, Pecorino, known for its austere, structured, powerful form, has recently been rediscovered by a new generation of local wine growers, who are working to restore it to its former heralded glory. Here, its personality and strength are enhanced through production: the decanted must is spontaneous fermented with indigenous yeast in medium toast, 25hL Slavonian oak barrels over a period of 8-10 weeks, then aged for 6 months on its lees in the same barrels. The finished wine is refined for 3 months in bottle prior to release. Vineyards lie in the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province at 280m.

Reds:
Bacchus Piceno DOP 2019, $17.95
Equal parts Montepulciano and Sangiovese, grown in mixed clay soils 300m on the Marches hills surrounding the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province. This unoaked red is meant to be enjoyed in youth, within 2-3 years of release. With an intense and fruit rich nose, this medium to full bodied red is round and supple, with great purity of fruit. The fresh acidity keeps it light on its feet, and the tannins are ripe and silky.
