Rosso Piceno 2017 Saladini Pilastri
This is an almost Claret-like blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Fruity, yet with cedary elegance. For those who prefer a drier, more structured wine.
Saladini Pilastri is a family firm which has produced wine for many generations, but has recently introduced modern technology to great effect. Organic wines from the Piceno appellation are their trademark and they are excellent value for money. The Wine Advocate said of their 2007 red; “ The estate’s 2007 Rosso Piceno is an unqualified success. This soft-textured red caresses the paIate with waves of ripe fruit, tobacco and spices. It offers remarkable balance at this level and must surely be one of Italy’s finest wines at this price point” Their wines have not disappointed since.
