Alberto Serenelli is a well-known grower and winemaker in Marche - particularly respected for his Rosso Conero wines. He has top quality vineyards in the heart of the Conero area (near Ancona on Marche's eastern coast) from where these grapes are sourced. The vines grow on chalky soils at 200m altitude. The Montepulciano grapes are hand-harvested at the start of October and vinified in Serenelli's cellar. After prolonged maceration on the skins the wine is matured - partly in small barriques and partly in large casks.
An intense, ripe and inviting nose of plum, dried fruit, black cherry and spice. The wine is powerful with ripe blackberry and bitter chocolate characters, balanced by earthy notes - savoury and spicy with rich well-structured tannins, smooth and lasting on the finish. A full, satisfying red with concentration, drinkability and the ability to age.
