Menicucci is carved out of an Italian family tradition, flavored with passion and dedication.
Beginning in 1970, Antonio Menicucci planted his first grapes in Ortona, Italy. Three generations later the Menicucci legacy continues. Menicucci proudly produces a variety of organic hand-crafted wines, and sparkling wines that satisfy every palate ranging from unique, fruit-infused wines to traditional white and red varietals.
Along with their love and passion for making great wines, they are committed to delivering superior quality and unforgettable memories. Their unique and continuous innovation techniques have seen them become one of the industry’s most admired Italian wine brands.
Ginesia uses an innovative, unique and modern packaging technology by Amorin. Helix is the world’s first natural cork stopper, and glass bottle with an easy-to-open and re-close mechanism, combined with natures best materials with 21st century design. Menicucci's Ginesia is the first Abruzzo wine (and the second in Italy) to bring this innovative and easy-to-use technology to consumers worldwide.
Old vineyards selected in the municipalities of Orsogna, Filleto and Guardiagrele. The soils are made up textured lands and generally end with a limestone substrate and rocky outcrops sparse. The thermal values characterize a rather warm texture, with little annual rainfall and very high temperature ranges; ideal conditions that have a positive influence on the quality of the grapes.
After careful selection, the grapes are de-stemmed, then, very gently, crushed, causing as little damage as possible to the skins. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-15 days at a temperature ranging between 25 and 28 °C. Part of the wine is aged in oak barriques, and the other part in steel tanks for at least four months.
A ruby red color with slight purple shades. The nose is intense, floral, fruity (with a hint of black cherry), with a slight spiciness. The taste is tannic, full-bodied, balanced and refined with an almond finish.
This bold wine pairs perfectly with a variety of meaty pasta sauces and grilled red meat.
