Very intense ruby colour with slight grainy tones. Rich and persistent nose with a sophisticated, berry-scented bouquet revealing hints of almond extract, mint, and earth. Fresh and fruity palate that is well-structured with soft tannins, mellowed in French oak.
Description

Just north of the Abruzzo nestled in the rolling hills behind the walled city of Ascoli Piceno lies the estate of Saladini Pilastri.  They are one of the oldest families in the Marche and their 200 hectares includes the usual viticultural suspects (Trebbiano, Sangiovese and Montepulciano) as well as a few Rhône rangers including Viognier and Syrah.  All the vineyards are farmed organically which is no hardship given the hot, dry summers.

The Rosso Piceno is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Montepulciano and collects its thoughts in large old oak for a few months prior to bottling.  This is more than just quaffing wine par excellence, it seriously over-delivers and takes the battle straight to the heart of Tuscany.

Tasting Notes: Very intense ruby colour with slight grainy tones. Rich and persistent nose with a sophisticated, berry-scented bouquet revealing hints of almond extract, mint, and earth. Fresh and fruity palate that is well-structured with soft tannins, mellowed in French oak.
