Le Terrazze Rosso Conero 2015
Discover the other Italian coast. Just across the peninsula, Tuscany has expensive, sexy red wines, but the Marche, facing the Adriatic, still abounds in values – and in wines with equal appeal. Rosso Conero is a delicious Montepulciano briefly aged in large casks, emphasizing fruit and freshness. Le Terrazze is a practicing organic producer. They use integrated insect and disease control in the vineyards. Cover crops between the rows of vines help fertilize and prevent erosion and the soil is never tilled. Only organic fertilizers are used when necessary, but these instances are rare – not fertilizing helps keep the production low. Rich, full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long finish. A perfect accompaniment to grilled red meat, but also great just by the glass.
