The 2006 Rosso Piceno (70% Sangiovese, 30% Montepulciano) is a fresh, perfumed wine with a pretty core of dark fruit and good overall balance. It is an approachable red to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

The 2004 Rosso Piceno (30% Montepulciano and 70% Sangiovese) exhibits loads of strawberry and herbaceously-tinged black cherry fruit in its exuberant, robust personality. With wonderful depth, a silky texture, and pleasant herb, earth, and spice characteristics, it should be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years, preferably with grilled poultry and meats.

A delicious and flavorful wine, with a silky, ripe substance and a structure that's present but blended-in. In this vintage the wine seems to be more refined and delicate, with floral aromas that we're unaccustomed to seeing. A wine that's made to please, perfect for summertime cooking.

The estate's 2007 Rosso Piceno is an unqualified success. This soft-textured red caresses the palate with waves of ripe fruit, tobacco and spices. It offers remarkable balance at this level and must surely be one of Italy's finest wines at this price point. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

A blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese that delivers loads of plum and black cherry fruit along with soft tannins. An approachable wine that screams "house red!"

Sangiovese is the primary grape in this Italian blend of Sangiovese (70%) and Montepulciano (30%), a well-balanced combination that is similar to Chianti but a bit lighter and with more fruit. The tannins are pronounced but hang back a bit because of the dark fruit notes, and there is a characteristic subtle spiciness common to Italian reds that highlights the depth and character of the wine.

Saladini Pilastri was the first winery in the Piceno area to achieve the prestigious Tre Bicchieri award from Italy's wine bible, the Gambero Rosso. All the winemaking is overseen by celebrated enologist Alberto Antonini. All of the farming is done without the use of chemical fertilizers and the winery is recognized by the EU as organic. Wine Advocate raves about the wines, perpetually scoring them 90 and above. This Rosso Piceno is full bodied and rich, a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Montepulciano. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks and is further aged for six months in large oak casks to give smooth tannins without adding overpowering oak flavors to the wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

In der Nase wunderbar fruchtig, reife Kirschen, feine Fassaromen. Am Gaumen massig und kompakt, gute Konzentration, voll und dicht, lang anhaltender Abgang - ein absoluter Spaßwein.
