External Reviews for Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno
The 2008 Rosso Piceno is a pleasant, fruity red to drink over the next few years. This cask-aged blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Montepulciano offers good length and lovely balance at this level, with pretty floral notes that linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
Fresh and clean without a hint of oak in sight, this light, straw-colored white blend has layers of flavor ranging from white pear to citrus. This should find itself a rightful place in your refrigerator this summer!
One of the absolute best values in Italian wine in the store - take notice of this one. Beautiful and lush, with a nose of blackberry, tobacco smoke and earth, followed by a blend of spice and dark fruit, and gentle tannins on the (supremely) lengthy finish. Did I mention I love this wine?
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 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!"
Kräftiger, voller Roter mit Aromen von schwarzen Kirschen, frischen Kaffeebohnen, Vanille und etwas Rauch. Auf der Zunge zeigt er sich lebhaft mit kernigen Tanninen im Abgang.
In der Nase Aromen von Wald- und Erdbeeren, feine Rauch- und Lakritzetöne. Im Gaumen ausgeglichen beerig.
