We said good-by to Emidio and his property in the morning.
Then, we drove to Supra Marittima in Marche to visit Oasi degli Angeli. The owners, husband and wife team of Marco and Eleonora welcomed us at their estate.
Marco first walked us to their vineyards. These are only 5 km from the sea and on a hillside. The vineyards were originally planted by Eleonora's ancestors and some of their Montepulciano vines are 95 years old.
Marco's first vintage is 1997 and he makes only Kurni (100% Montepulciano) and Supra (100% Bordo). His Kurni was aged in new barrique twice for the total of 2.5 years. The reason for this is not to make a heavy oak-tasting wine, but because he believes the method can give the right amount of breathing for the wine.
He poured us 2013 Kurni, which is going to be released in a couple of weeks! It was obviously still very young yet really complete and beautiful. Such a sensual wine.
