Best Wines of Le Marche: Fattoria Mancini - Colli Pesaresi Doc Focara Pinot Nero - 2009

Best Wines of Le Marche: Fattoria Mancini - Colli Pesaresi Doc Focara Pinot Nero - 2009 | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Pinot Noir was introduced to the coast of Pesaro by the French administration during the Napoleonic Empire. The soil of calcareous sandstone and the cool microclimate, were considered to be ideal for the cultivation of this variety. From 1861, for five generations of winegrowers, the Mancini family have preserved and reproduced the original clones, on the best terrains of Natural Park of Monte San Bartolo. Among these hills, the area of Focara in particular has distinguished itself over the years for the production of Pinot Noir with a strong personality and with the typical character of this grape variety.
Focara Pinot Noir is produced from a traditional red vinification, then aged in barrel for 12 months. The quality and history of this wine was acknowledged in 2000 through the creation of the D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) Colli Pesaresi Focara Pinot Nero.

Selvagrossa Wines Le Marche

Selvagrossa Wines Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Selvagrossa is one of the most fascinating emerging properties in the Marche. The Cabernet Franc Poveriano in particular is showing remarkable potential. Brothers Alessandro and Alberto Taddei certainly seem to be on the right track
The 2008 Poveriano (Cabernet Franc) emerges from the glass with expressive dark red fruit, grilled herbs, licorice and spices. Initially a touch compact, the wine fills out nicely on the mid-palate and finish. 

The 2008 Trimpilin (Sangiovese) shows limited depth in its fruit, with hard, angular tannins that clamp down on the finish. Both bottles I tasted were lean and compact, suggesting underripe fruit. 

The 2009 Muschen is a pretty entry-level red. Sweet floral and red berry flavors come together nicely in this mid-weight, fresh wine meant for near-term enjoyment. Muschen is 50% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
