Rosso Piceno Superiore DOCG, Aurora (2017) - Marche
Grapes : Montepulciano, Sangiovese.
Organic. This is a nice bottle of red! Rich but very well balanced, the oak is there, toasty and warming but good Montepulciano loves oak and so the integration is excellent. Franco doesn't use new barrels for this wine, he is not trying to cover his wine, just to express the opulence of the variety and lushness that nature gives him with his Terroir.
Food pairing : A great wine for food pairing due to is good body and nuance and is an ideal accompaniment for fatty meats such as a grilled mackerel, rich sauces, meat plates cheeses of medium aging.
