Saladini Pilastri: noble organic farming in Le Marche

Saladini Pilastri: noble organic farming in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Nestled in the rolling hills behind the walled city of Ascoli Piceno lies the estate of Saladini Pilastri. They are one of the oldest families in the Marche and their 200 hectares includes Trebbiano, Sangiovese, Pecorino, Passerina, Montepulciano, Viognier and Syrah. All the vineyards are farmed organically. The Falerio is lively and full of fruit with more character than one has a right to expect at this price: floral on the nose with apple and a faint herbal note the initial delicacy hides surprising body with healthy acidity and a bitter almond finish. The Rosso Piceno is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Montepulciano and collects its thoughts in large old oak for a few months prior to bottling.
