Tasting Notes

“Merlettaie” means lace, and the name of this wine pays homage to the lace workers of Offida weave together the threads, with precise and quick movement of their fingers, hence the name. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin... a similarity it shares with Pecorino, a noble Italic, austere, harsh and strong grape, which has been confined for decades onto the bare and steep slopes of the Piceno Apennines. A few wine growers have recently rediscovered this wine thanks to their love and enthusiasm.

Pecorino is rare, precious and able to exhale a strong personality recalling ethereal and persistent sensations, year after year. Its personality and strength are harmonically enhanced by fermentation in “noble” wood, a perfect example of the past combined with a new oenological knowledge. The decanted must is fermented in medium-sized oak barrels, and then aged for approximately 6 months on its lees. 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 ASL.


Critical Praise

2019 vintage hasn't been rated yet but the 2018 received the following score and review:

91 points Michael Godel, Wine Align
Ciù Ciù takes pecorino as serious as any and here is the gateway drug into both the grape variety, what it is and oh what it can be in the Marche. The levels of feeling permeate the structure, integrate and satiate thirst, but varietal hunger too. The fruit source is clearly high quality and the handling just right. Lovely wine. Top notch pecorino. Should get into some lemon, honey and beeswax before too long. Drink 2020-2025. Tasted March 2020.
