Rosso Piceno is the largest AOC of the Marche region of central, coastal Italy. By regulation the wine must be 65% sangiovese – after that you can throw pretty much anything else you like into it. I guess the rosso is indicative that this is red wine – not chardonnay!I drank it in the evening whilst prepping a really delicious 3 meat Bolognese. I like having a wine from the country whose food I am cooking. Spag Bog needs an Italian wine. I had the Fattoria laying around so out popped the cork. I love remembering why I bought the wine for the store in the first place. Memories came back to. The wine is rich without being OTT. Lots of good red and black fruit, nothing damaging, no high acidity, no flawed flavors, just pure wine. Color was garnet and clear, aromas were sweet nothing excessive, and the flavor really easy.You can’t drink heavy wine every night, sometimes not at all, and I get so much more excited over drinking a cheapy like this when everything, including the price, comes together. Loved it, loved the Spag Bog.Producer: Fattoria Laila
