Passerina

Maria Pia Castelli

Stella Flora Marche IGT 2019

Beautiful wine from Marche. Light skin contact gives a beautiful structure that somehow mimics barrel usage without having the “corrupted” flavor profile.
I somehow had a touch of iodine in the nose, sea shell, sea breeze. I had it decanted and a slight oxidation amplified the mouthfeel. Delicious wine indeed, perfect for gastronomy.

Monocromo #1 Passerina del Frusinate

Effervescent yet subdued. Apple and pear flavors with wildflowers on the nose. Extremely fun wine. — a year ago

Lucrezia Passerina 2020

Very surprising
A grape variety that normally gives fruit and fun style wines
Never pretentious or overwhelming

In this case we may lack a bit of fruit, but we have a wet stone salty tingling mineral that is unheard of for a passerina and that is very rare altogether
It lingers too

Aperitif or with raw seafood i would say

I am guessing the bottle ageing has worked well for this wine..probably first time for me with a passerina 4yo

Déjà V Offida Passerina

2020 vintage.
Passerina is an ancient grape grown in Marche in clay and calcareous soil. Fermented in stainless steel with ageing “sur lies” for 4 months.
Fragrant and floral with citrus and honeysuckle on the nose. Dry with medium acidity. Pear, almond and citrus with a savoury, stoney minerality on the finish.
We BBQ‘d local fish.
Ling cod cheeks, Sablefish collars and Chinook Salmon bellies.
