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 of 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.
The whole bunches are sent within pneumatic presses and the must is fermented at a low temperature ranging between 12-14°C. Refined in stainless steel tanks then bottled
A straw yellow color, clear and lively. The nose hints of white flowers, white fruits, ethereal overtones topped with a finish of bitter almond. Full bodied, well-structured with a rich persistence and balance.
Ideal with seafood, mushrooms, cheese (fresh and medium-aged) and white meat.
