Rosso Piceno D.O.C.

Rosso Piceno

Produced mainly with Montepulciano and Sangiovese and a small amount of Cabernet-Sauvignon.

The permanence in oak barrels gives depth and aromas reminiscent of red fruit. On the palate the softness is enlivened by tannin flavours.

The geographical area of the DOC Rosso Piceno is the part of the territory of the Marche region which has as its northern border the course of the Metauro river, and to the south the Tronto river.
