Velenosi Rosso Piceno Superiore Bio 2019

Rosso Piceno Superiore is ruby red in color with red garnet hues. On the nose, the wine is intense with strong nuances of red flesh, hints of black pepper added to floral scents of fresh violets. Elegant vanilla nuances conclude this rich and complex bouquet. On the palate, the wine is persistent, warm, full-bodied and harmonious. The palate confirms the fruity, floral and spicy scents. Great structure, persistent with a long satisfying finish.

The wine is made from 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese sourced from vineyards located in the Ripatransone, Offida and Castorano districts and are grown organically. The grapes are hand-picked in mid-October and placed in small crates. After destemming, the grapes are transported to 200Hl stainless steel fermentation tanks. The maceration on the skins takes about 20 days. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine matures in new French oak barriques.
  • About Velenosi

    Velenosi was founded in 1984 by two very young entrepreneurs, Angela and Ercole Velenosi. They combined traditional and modern techniques, leading to their own creative interpretation of winemaking!

    Through these insights, the company is constantly growing and adapting itself, creating unique wines that showcase the best of the Piceno region. The heart of the company is located in the historic town of Ascoli Piceno, located in the Marche region and at a distance of about 20 km from the Adriatic Sea and at an altitude of about 150 meters above sea level. The company's vineyard plots extend among the hills surrounding the beautiful valley of the Tronto River, which, thanks to its clayey and fertile soil, has always been suitable for growing grapes. In addition to the four vineyard plots located in Ascoli Piceno, Castorano, Monsampolo and Castel di Lama, there is a vineyard in the area of Ancarano and in the area of San Marcello (AN).
