Rosso Piceno Superiore

Intense ruby red color tending to violet.

The nose is clean, full of hints of ripe red fruit, black cherry and plum as well as pleasant spicy notes.

In the mouth it is bursting, the tannin is soft and the alcoholic sensation is not intrusive, but we find the same sensations, those perceived on the nose.


Tale . . . 

The production area of Rosso Piceno Superiore Doc is very restricted, including only the territories of the 13 municipalities further south of the Marche.

An area that the ministerial regulation defines as “very high viticultural vocation”.
The maximum production of grapes per hectare of vineyard must not exceed 12 tonnes.

The grapes used for vinification must ensure a minimum natural alcohol content of 11.5% for wines.
Rosso Piceno Superiore wines must be aged at least one year: they cannot be released for consumption before November 1st of the year following the year of grape production.
