From the start, Rosso Piceno Superiore aspired to be a typical Mediterranean red wine and the maximum vocational expression of the Piceno region. It combines the meticulous philosophy of our winery very best of the winerpleasures of the freshness, flavour and delightfulness of a youthful wine with the complex structure of a fuller red. It is dedicated to those who wish to savour the bouquet of an extraordinarily light, classic red wine that evades the seriousness of fuller-bodied, barrel-aged wines.
