ROSSO PICENO SUPERIORE D.O.C.

 

The wine-making grandfather would take the wine to

Rome in a Horse and cart and from here stems the

name. A wine suitable for cold winter evenings, warm,

intensely fruity, with excellent full-body and tempting,

as it is dry extract. It was created thanks to the

harmonious blendof two important grape varieties

from the Marches:Montepulciano and Sangiovese.

The impulsive tannin liveliness of the Montepulciano

is softned and smoothed in this wine by the

Sangiovese grape variety creating a wine that is

decidedly suited to any winter dish and, if suitably

chilled, even to summer dishes.
