ROSSO PICENO SUPERIORE DOC
Unique, full and powerful.
The history of Rosso Piceno brings back thousands of years, through the mysteries of the ancient Piceno civilization: Italic people contemporary with the Etruscans who inhabited this area before the Roman conquest. The Rosso Piceno DOC is the result of an established traditional formula that harmonizes the character of Sangiovese and the elegance of Montepulciano grapes. The rolling hills and the valleys from the Piceno, which slope down towards the Adriatic sea, create a unique and immediately recognizable wine.
Ruby red with garnet reflections. Hints of jam followed by black pepper and tobacco with mentholated gusts.
Full and powerful in the mouth, it has a dense tannic texture but well inserted into the structure.
Recommended with truffle-based dishes.
