Appellation: Rosso Piceno DOC
Grape varieties: 50% Montepulciano 50% Sangiovese
Winemaking: Rosso Piceno is the doc with the most history in our territory. Montepulciano and Sangiovese have always been cultivated in the piceno area. For this reason the footprint in the making of this wine is minimal and traditional: alcoholic fermentation with skin maceration at 25°C until the exhaustion of the sugars, devatting and malolactic fermentation. The two grape varieties are processed individually and assembled later on in steel.
Wine Tasting: Ruby red with a violet tint. To the nose berries can be perceived. This is typical of Montepulciano and Sangiovese: blueberries, plums, sour cherries and black cherries. To the taste it's warm soft and persistent, tannins can be tasted seen as Montepulciano shows its strenght and prevails over Sangiovese.
The ancient population of Piceni lived on fertile terrain with a great view; details which granted prosperity and defensibility to the village. Rosso Piceno inhabits the same fertile hills, preferring South-East exposure. Montepulciano and Sangiovese cohabit in this wine like bulwarks of the Piceno agricultural tradition.
