Failoni Rosso Piceno 2010

The Rosso Piceno DOC is the largest production zone in the Marche region of central Italy. Sangiovese and Montepulciano are the predominant grapes used for the wine, other varietals such as Trebbiano and Passerina can comprise up to 15% of the blend.  The style and blend varies widely according to each producer, but they tend to always be a fantastic value. Le Marche is a region to watch as it is on the rise and beginning to see consistent critical praise.

Antonio Failoni is a 20 acre family estate located in the rolling hills of the medieval town of Stafford in the Marche region. The Failoni family is passionate about the land and crafting wines with a blending of tradition and innovation that express the characteristics of Le Marche.

Dark garnet in colour with rustic aromas of cherry and earth. Fruity cherry, red currant and pomegranate joined dry tannins, an earthy minerality and licorice notes in the savoury finish. Straightforward and unassuming, this is a fantastic accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes.
