‘Sassaiolo’ Rosso Piceno 2013 Monte Schiavo


    Many Italian reds are more enjoyable paired with food, but this wine is perfectly drinkable as is. Very approachable and an excellent stepping stone towards bigger, even more macho Italian reds!

  • Origin

    Rosso Piceno DOC is part of the region of Marches, just north of Rome on the east coast of Italy. Wines from this region were already known in Roman times and Hannibal reportedly used it to rub down his cavalry horses on his march to Rome, to give them new vigour.

  • Taste

    A wine offering the elegance of Sangiovese combined with the charming ripe fruit of the Montepulciano. Smooth and rich on the palate with a long, balanced finish.

  • Enjoy

    Absolutely an all-rounder, this goes particularly well with rich pasta dishes.
