Fattoria Mancini Blu Marche IGT 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Blu is a wine produced principally with the grape variety Ancellotta, grown in a small vineyard on the hill of Montebacchino, just north of Pesaro along Italy’s Adriatic coast. The variety of Ancellotta is known for its considerable colouring properties, and was traditionally used in small percentages to improve the colour of wine obtained from other varieties. In 1998, realising the potential of the grapes produced in an old vineyard of Ancellotta, Fattoria Mancini decided to create a wine to portray the best characteristics of the variety. The wine obtained revealed itself to be interesting for the impenetrable colour, unique and intense aromas, important structure, concentration of tannins and notable longevity. During its production the indelible blue staining left on the floor of the winery soon suggested the wine’s future name: Blu.
