Organic Wines Le Marche: Clara Marcelli, Castorano

Organic Wines Le Marche: Clara Marcelli, Castorano | Wines and People | Scoop.it

These organic wines reach real highs on all score boards. The pecorino is golden coloured, full bodied, fragrant. The Piceno superiore (70% Montepulciano, 30% Sangiovese) deep and fruity, but the exceptional ‘K’un’ (100% Montepulciano) with 30 months in oak and tasting of black fruit, spice and chocolate is the best.
It’s well worth a visit though because only few Piceno wines are available in the UK or US but surely more should be arrive in the future.
