🐸🐸🐸 Natural biodynamic wine, little sulphite

Organic and biodynamic.


--

Red wine from a small defined area of Ascoli Piceno where the denomination allows the designation "Superiore" after one year of maturation.

Big brother of Rosso Piceno, it differs from this one due to the aging which is no longer 100% stainless steel but rather 24 months in barrels of 3000 liters. This rounds the wine without marking it too much by the wood.

 

On the palate, the wine opens quickly thanks to a beautiful acidity which brings a pleasant and dynamic tone and it develops rich aromas which end with a long finish of juicy tannins and a return to red fruits.

The grape varieties

Sangiovese: 

One of the oldest Italian varieties (blood of Jupiter / sangue di Giove), also cultivated in Etruscan times. It is the most widely planted red grape variety in Italy, especially in Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia Romagna. There are many types of Sangiovese, but the two main divisions are: Sangiovese Grosso, more prized is also less planted, almost entirely in the area of Montalcino (SI), where it is called Prugnolo Gentile; Sangiovese Piccolo is the most common and is known by various synonyms depending on the area, among which is Morellino de Scansano. It is known for wines of intense ruby red color, tannins, good body, harmony and a nice bitterness: it shows fruity aromas when young, but after aging they become noticeably more refined. Often mixed with other wines to add color, harmony and aromas.

Montepulciano: 

The origin of this variety of "black" berries has always been uncertain, it is often confused with Sangiovese, probably because of the existence of the Tuscan town of the same name. Those who have studied it, such as Molon (1906) classified it as a Sangioveti. Today, it is certain that the 2 varieties have nothing in common. It is most often cultivated in Abruzzo, Marche and other areas of the central / southern Adriatic.

It has many names, such as Montepulcian of Abruzzo, Primatice, Cordisco etc. Today, thanks to the excellent work of some producers and winegrowers, Montepulciano has grown to become one of the high quality red wines. Montepulciano prefers a hot and dry climate with a soaked sun exposure to guarantee a good and regular ripening of the grapes. When vinified on its own, the wine is ensured to be of high quality, good for aging while at the same time improving wines of other varieties when blended and can provide similar aromas to some wines. from Bordeaux .
