2011 Rio Maggio Rosso Piceno - Split bottle
Rio Maggio's beautiful Rosso Piceno in a 375mL half-bottle!
The grapes used for this exquisite blend come from the oldest vineyard on the property. A blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes, the wine is structured and quite pleasant to drink. Classic Bordeaux-style winemaking is employed, with aging in French barrels for 8-10 months, then an additional 6 months in the bottle before release. Dry and balanced, it carries notes of creamy berries on the nose, and tastes of cherry and vanilla.
This wine pairs very well with seasoned chicken dishes and savory dishes such as red meats and mushrooms.
