Rosso Piceno DOC
The wine of our countryside, the wine of our peasant tradition, the wine of sharecropping. At that time nobody talked about blends, wines were not produced to be sold but to be drunk. The purpose was one: to bring, every day, a nice bottle of red wine to the table. Each family chose if and how long to leave it in the barrels, but one thing was certain. In those barrels there were two grape varieties: Montepulciano and Sangiovese. Today, as then, we propose that union of two grape varieties that have always been together. With an exuberant nature, this wine tells of a landscape that is colored with brilliant tones. Raspberries, cyclamen, morello cherries. The aftertaste is characterized by a citrusy touch of chinotto which refreshes and invites you to fill your glasses.

It is the triumph of red and spontaneity, of color over monotony, of luxuriant vegetation over summer heat. This is why the poppy is the symbol of our Rosso Piceno DOC.
Clayey with southeast / southwest exposure and elevation, from 200 to 250 m a.sl.
Manual harvest from the third decade of September. Vinification with maceration and fermentation of the skins of black grapes at a controlled temperature not exceeding 28°C.
Talking about microclimate, soils, the set of factors that determine the uniqueness of a territory, what is called terroir, is of primary importance.
These elements define the character of a wine, they influence its sensorial traits.
Aromas and flavors will develop during fermentation and maturation, enriching the wine with hints that originate in the nature of a specific territory.
All this creates the peculiarities that see the first and main gustatory definition in the vine within a macro-area.
