Vinification of the Velenosi Roggio del Filare Rosso Piceno Superiore
The basis for the powerful Roggio del Filare Rosso Piceno Superiore from Marche are grapes from the Montepulciano and Sangiovese grape varieties. The Roggio del Filare Rosso Piceno Superiore is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The ripening of the grapes for this Montepulciano and Sangiovese wine is influenced to a considerable extent by the climate of the growing region. In Marche, the grapes thrive in a warm climate, which is reflected, among other things, in particularly well-ripened grapes and a rather high must weight. After the grape harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in large wooden vats at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Roggio del Filare Rosso Piceno Superiore is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
