Our red is the simple “red” of our terroir, and because we are close to the Marche region it is natural to produce both the Sangiovese as well as the Montepulciano, which is the most typical red grape of the Ascoli Piceno region which we border.
The oldest vine parcel inherited and planted by Alfonso between 1945 and 1950 was a mixture of Montepulciano and Sangiovese. There were always problems managing them because the two varieties develop and mature differently, early for the Sangiovese and late for the Montepulciano.
The wine that was obtained was a red, not “fully-bodied” as the regular Montepulciano, but lighter and more perfumed. It is more drinkable overall and should be consumed young or in any case, without the need of long aging.
