Grape varieties and vineyards

85% Montepulciano, 15% Sangiovese.

Area

This Rosso Conero comes from vineyards on the slopes of Monte Conero, near Ancona. The terroirs are resulting from the disintegration of the mountain and have physiochemical composition, permeability and an exceptional microclimate.

Winemaking

The production process is based upon vinification techniques that are handled with care in every step. Following a careful selection of the grapes, the wine is produced through a traditional fermentation in concrete tanks for 20 days. Rosso Conero rests in concrete tanks for the subsequent 4 months and in the bottle for 2 additional months to achieve its elegance and aromatic concentration.

Tasting notes

Colour: brillant ruby-red with purple undertones. Bouquet: intense bouquet of wild berries and wild flowers and red fruits. Taste: vibrant and elegant, well- rounded with good concentration.
