Cameli Irene Milia 2019Brand - Cameli Irene, Azienda Agricola
Fruit: 〚yellow, citrusy〛
In our dreams, this is how clean laundry actually smells - not like detergent, just fresh and light and so so clean. The perfect match to a light salad - arugula, citrus, pumpkin seeds. Slight nuttiness, underripe nectarine, tangerine peel, lemon/lime, green banana, chamomile, a touch of dried grass, ripe green apple, spearmint dried grass, and incense as the glass warms. The finish is mostly yellow fruits and minerality.
Best served at 10-12°C or 50-54°F
The vines of four indigenous grapes are grown on a small plot in the hills of Castorano in the middle of the Province of Ascoli Piceno. A little corner of land that the Allevi family has taken care of and cultivated with great love, for more than forty years. They like to consider one of Dante Alighieri’s most famous triplets from his Inferno when they think of their relationship with their vines: “Amor ch’a nulla amato amar perdona, mi prese dal costui piacer sì forte, che, come vedi, ancor non m'abbandona.” This means that anyone (or thing) that is greatly loved, is compelled to love in return. So, the Allevi family believes that their vineyards give back the love of which they are made object, producing high-quality grapes which produce exquisite and unique wines.
The native vines grown on the property include Passerina, Pecorino, Sangiovese, and Montepulciano. Planted on hills that face south and are sheltered from the sea winds. The mild climate, the intense light exposure, and the abundance of rainwater and underground water make up an ideal environment for the cultivation of precious grapes.
