RIO Rosso Piceno D.O.C.

My name is Rio and I take the name from the river that runs along my vineyards. I am a Rosso Piceno, wine of ancient origins and long tradition, which is documented since the pre-Roman population of Piceni. My grapes are 50% Montepulciano and 50% Sangiovese, two noble grape varieties historically grown in the Marche Region; I am a harmonious combination between the character of Montepulciano and the elegance of Sangiovese. I have a wine with great balance and good drinkability. I distinguish for my ruby color with violet reflections; by smell are perceptible floral and fruity notes. My taste is soft, round and persistent. My winemaking process: fermentation in stainless steel tanks with pre-fermentative cold maceration and subsequent fermentation at controlled temperature 26-28 °with pumping over technique.
Maturation in stainless steel tanks, aging in bottles for 2 months.

I perfectly match with white and red meat, cold cuts, cheese.
