Monte Schiavo Sassaiolo Rosso Piceno

£12.00

A chunky, savoury, rich, dark-fruited and oak-aged Montepulciano and Sangiovese blend

The Marche is known for its white wine but the region also makes some outstanding reds. Monte Schiavo’s Rosso Piceno is a Superiore DOC wine made from a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Montepulciano grapes. The vineyards are at an altitude of 120 metres above sea level, with clay loam soil. The vines are Cordon trained and spur pruned. Matured for 12 months in Slavonian oak.

Aromas of ripe black cherry and plum fruit with spicy, savoury notes. The palate is packed full of rich damson fruit and lightly spiced notes. Chewy tannins add structure and lead to a robust, but elegant, finish with a touch of black pepper on the earthy finish.
