Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani were childhood friends in Abruzzo, then lost touch. When they found each other again after university, it was with a shared passion for wine, so they decided to try their hands at making it together.
Since the beginning of their project, they’ve approached it with a love of both natural winemaking and avid experimentation. They’ve never trained at a formal wine academy, and they don’t rely on agronomists or oenologists.
They have learned by trial and error in the vineyards and cellars. In fact, their first fermentation in 2010 was such a disaster that they called in an expert grandma, virtuosa at getting rid of the evil eye, to perform a ritual over their grapes. Apparently it worked, and Lammidia (“evil eye” in Abruzzese dialect) was born.
We aim for the stars with this one! 100 % Chardonnay! Like if pineapple and green apple had a child and it was made into kombucha! A little musty on the nose with bright fruit.
Excitable acidity and energy with medium intensity. From 25-year-old vines harvested by hand. This wine was made by spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks. Great as an aperitif or paired with a Mediterranean fish dish! Lively on the palate with medium acidity.
Tasting Notes: Fresh and lively with lemon, other citrus, yellow apple and a "saké aftertaste".
Pairing Suggestions: Pasta, Grilled Fish, Summer Salads.
