Tenuta Mattei Rosso Piceno
Grapes: Montepulciano, Sangiovese
Tenuta Mattei is a bucolic organic estate set amongst the Esino hills of Marche, a short drive inland from Italy's Adriatic coast. Here in alluvial soils rich in marine soils they grow the 6 varieties key to Marche winemaking: Verdicchio, Passerina and Pecorino (for whites) and Lacrima, Montepulciano and Sangiovese (for reds).
This is a beguiling organic red made in Marche on Italy's Adriatic coast. Comprised of the classic Piceno red blend of Marche marrying the gorgeous red berry aromatics of Sangiovese with the deeper, savoury, and brooding blackberry, earth and leather of Montepulciano.
