Rosso Piceno

Rosso Piceno DOP

Wine obtained from the harmonious blending of two primary indigenous red varieties of Marcheshire, Montepulciano (80%) and Sangiovese (20%). In some vintages Sangiovese can be replaced by the Merlot grapes.

Production tecniques
Grapes are selected and collected by hand.
Destemming and fermentation at controlled temperature. Maceration of skins for about 6 days, and then a natural malolactic fermentation.
Ages for 12 months in stainless steel tank and then in bottle for another 3 months.

Vibrant ruby red, with ruby reflections, that evidence the colour characteristics of the Montepulciano grapes and the young age of this wine.

Aromatic notes
Pleasant and intense aroma of red flowers and sweet red fruits like cherry and strawberry.

Tasting notes
The wine is delicate and full-bodied but fine and elegant. The young tannin gives a persistent finish.
It was the ultimate expression of the characteristic of the variety Montepulciano, the most red grape cultivate in our area. Galliano is the example of a wine with an intense aromatic potential and a nice body. An easy-to drink-red vine, an ideal suggestion for your daily meal

Food pairing
This wine is ideal for salty aperitifs with salumi, cheeses or fried food. We suggest tipycal Marcheshire appetizers: ciauscolo and olive all'ascolana.
Perfect with red meat and white meat dishes as pork, lamb, rabbit or chicken. We suggest: scaloppine with mushrooms or grilled chicken with potatoes.
Pasta dishes with red sauces or pizza as well. We suggest: rigatoni all'amatriciana.
