VALLONE Rosso Piceno DOC

Description
I am an historical wine, whose first evidences date back to the ancient people of Piceni. An old tale of the Latin poet Polybius tells that the general Hannibal stopped in this Picenum Area and seeing his horses in troubles, let them treat with clutches of a very strong and aged red wine. 

My grapes are 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese. 
I am a structured wine, with good complexity, a well-proportioned body and enveloping final. I am dressed in a beautiful ruby red color and I offer the palate a harmonious flavor.
My winemaking process: fermentation in classic Bordeaux winemaking technique, lasting 12-15 days among pre- and post-fermentative maceration on the skins, with scheduled pumping-over and temperature control from 18° to 26° C. Maturation in either new or one-year old French barriques, for at least 8-10 months. Aging in bottle for 4-6 months. 

I perfectly match with: white and red meat, cold cuts, aged cheese, truffle-based dishes. 
AGING POTENTIAL: 5-10 years
