TIME RECONQUERED

There are places in this world where time flows differently Some are closer than we might think, some are just waiting to be discovered. The landscape surrounding the medieval village of Moresco, in the middle of the Marche region, is one of those places.

This is where Tenuta Manoylo first made its wine, where it produces its oil and where it discovered a new way of embracing time. Slower, calmer, more focused on what is relevant, connected to what matters the most.

Our journey to bring the world the taste of time reconquered began here.

The Estate

A PERFECT ENCOUNTER

Tenuta Manoylo’s vineyards unfurl over the picturesque hills surrounding the medieval village of Moresco and the River Aso Here, between the mountains and the sea, the climate with its mild springs and autumns and its hot summers mitigated by the Adriatic, is particularly favourable for growing grapevines.

The vineyard has been designed with the respect to the environment and with an idea of supporting biodiversity. The most recent technologies are implementing at every step of winemaking cycle in order to reduce carbon dioxide footprint, reuse water and conserve energy. Tenuta Manoylo’s global approach is based on ongoing research and innovation, while upholding a traditional, or even ancient, winemaking technique.

Amphoras

UNA STORIA LUNGA MILLENNI

Amphoras were used by the Greeks and Romans to transport food and wine, and archaeological finds along the River Aso testify to this activity. Our amphoras, made from clay from Monteleone Fermano, are used for wine fermentation and ageing, endowing it with typical local characteristics thanks to the porosity of the clay, which allows for slight oxygenation.

The "Vulcanelli"

A gift from the land

The unique characteristics of the land chosen for making Manoylo’s wine are celebrated every step of the way, even exploring new materials for wine refinement. The company is studying special vessels made by Italian artisans from the clay erupted from the local “vulcanelli” (or mud volcanoes).
