This wine is obtained from the first pressing must of the best over-mature grapes from our “old vines”, which are situated in the Classic zone of the Castelli di Jesi.
Refinement comes at least a year and a half in heat-conditioned vats and the completion of the bouquet comes about in the bottle, for at least a year.
A wine of exceptional substance combined with great refinement, with intense bouquet and enviable longevity.
Perfect with fish, shellfish, oysters and lobster, roasted white meat. [...]

Best Wines of Le Marche: Fattoria Mancini - Colli Pesaresi Doc Focara Pinot Nero - 2009

Best Wines of Le Marche: Fattoria Mancini - Colli Pesaresi Doc Focara Pinot Nero - 2009 | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Pinot Noir was introduced to the coast of Pesaro by the French administration during the Napoleonic Empire. The soil of calcareous sandstone and the cool microclimate, were considered to be ideal for the cultivation of this variety. From 1861, for five generations of winegrowers, the Mancini family have preserved and reproduced the original clones, on the best terrains of Natural Park of Monte San Bartolo. Among these hills, the area of Focara in particular has distinguished itself over the years for the production of Pinot Noir with a strong personality and with the typical character of this grape variety.
Focara Pinot Noir is produced from a traditional red vinification, then aged in barrel for 12 months. The quality and history of this wine was acknowledged in 2000 through the creation of the D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) Colli Pesaresi Focara Pinot Nero.
