Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani Abruzzo, Italy
Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani have been friends since they were three years old, and although they took different roads at times, they found each other again during college. Ever since, they began their journey into the world of wine.
In Central Abruzzo, Italy, their wines are simply made with spontaneously fermented grapes. They do not add any further substances, nor carry out clarifications and filtrations. Any residues are a sign of the naturalness and genuineness, necessary to keep their vivacious wines always alive.
“The 'mmidia", signifies envy or evil eye in the Abruzzese dialect. The wise women of the region use an ancient practice made of water, oil and magic to expel such energies, a practice that takes place before each harvest at Lammidia. "When we made the wine for the first time, the fermentation did not start; grandmother Antonia helped us by carrying out this ritual for us. A few minutes later, the fermentation started unstoppably."
Davide and Marco are in a process of constant research, taking inspiration from many winemakers that they have met on their journey and with whom they continue to have a dialog about how to cultivate, ferment, conserve and age wines. A source through which they synthesise their experience, which is in constant evolution.
