2022 Rosso Piceno

Colleleva
Discount Eligible $17.00
AT CART MAX

Near Italy’s Adriatic coast just west of Ancona, Colleleva produces some of the best value wines in our entire portfolio. After their zesty Verdicchio and perfumed Lacrima di Morro d’Alba, we are thrilled to introduce yet another specialty of Le Marche, this time bearing the Rosso Piceno denomination. A blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese fermented and aged in stainless steel, this rosso is crafted in a smooth, easy-drinking style. The aroma is on the juicy side, recalling red berries and soft spice. It features a screw cap closure and takes well to a slight chill, and shines with everyday fare such as pastas, pizza, cold cuts, or a BLT. This delicious bargain red will perfectly follow a cold glass of Colleleva’s Verdicchio.

About The Region

Le Marche

map of Le Marche

Le Marche’s reputation as a producer of fine wine is relatively recent, as the region is very much off the beaten path for tourists and tasters alike. And yet, early Etrsucan and Roman civilizations grew grapes here, a tradition that persists and continues to gain momentum in this undulating land where the Apennines descend to the Adriatic.

In between the warm coastline and the cool, rugged mountainous border with Umbria lies a landscape of calcareous rolling hills that provide ideal conditions for viticulture. The zingy, green-tinged, citrus- and pine-scented Verdicchio is king here, producing delightfully crisp whites that perfectly complement the fresh fish and seafood stews of the Adriatic, in addition to the pork-based dishes that are staples inland. Around the towns of Jesi and Matelica, the grape takes on an additional dimension and is even capable of significant aging under the right conditions.

While our involvement in the region is recent, the two producers we represent demonstrate that Le Marche is capable of producing whites of serious interest, which often come at great value.
