Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno Superiore 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Saladini Pilastri has been farming organically since 1995, and received certification in 1998. The history of Count Saladini Pilastri dates back to the year 1000. A noble family that boasts a rich and fascinating past hailing from Ascoli Piceno, where wine has always been a part of its culture. They began growing grapes three centuries ago in the limestone hills of Spinetoli and the rolling and sunny hills of Monte Prandone and Porto d'Ascoli.A delicious blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Montepulciano, the wine is full bodied, round and generous with harmonious balance and soft tannins. A wine that is both endearingly uncomplicated yet delectably alluring.

This is a tasty Italian blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano, produced with organic grapes. The wine has body and bright ripe fruit flavors along with a touch of oak and spice. Enjoy this easy-drinking red with lasagna, pizza or antipasto.

Bright red. Fresh strawberry and red cherry aromas are lifted by a mineral nuance. Juicy and fresh, with lively red berry and stony notes on the pure, vibrant palate. Finishes bright and long. This very well-made wine probably lacks the complexity for an outstanding score, but it’s such a delicious wine that I’ll be generous. Makes a great pizza and pasta wine, but it can also handle more complex fare.

A big, boisterous wine, the 2011 Rosso Piceno bursts from the glass with exotic red fruit, savory herbs, spices and earthiness. This hearty, flavorful Sangiovese/Montepulciano blend is best enjoyed over the next 2–3 years, while the wine retains its exuberance. The 2011 is a fabulous, drop-dead gorgeous wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2015.

This blended red from the little-known Piceno area of Central Italy offers ripe cherry fruit and prune followed by a dusty note of Graham cracker or rye bread.
