Angela Velenosi is an excellent winemaker who are readers know well. We recently wrote about her new role a president of the Piceno Wine Consortium. Her estate, which has its headquarters in Ascoli Piceno while the vineyards are in other areas of the Marche region, offers a vast selection of wines to suit every occasion and any budget.

Brecciarolo 2009 - Rosso Piceno Doc Superiore - Velenosi

Rating » 84
Category » Red
Region » Marche
Country » Italy

This red is made two thirds from Montepulciano grapes and about a third from Sangiovese. Aside from being a very reliable wine, it also has an exceptional price/quality ratio to say the least.
The color is a bright and intense ruby, while the aroma has classic scents of red fruit under spirits together with wild flowers and a smoked accent. The flavor is balanced, taut, easy to drink.
It should be served at cellar temperature, 14°C, and is good paired with brazed lamb chops and rigatoni all’amatriciana.

Price: 8.50 euros

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers and gourmets from the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, a first DOCG of the Region, to the Pecorino or Passerina, rediscovered wines that recently hit the headlines. Also the Rosso Conero and Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG wines, two great reds native to the vineyards of just seven municipalities in the Le Marche province of Ancona. The Le Marche where all these wines are found have mountains and hills gently sloping down to the coast, a great terroir, essential for the growth of great wines. In 2012, Le Marche produced 920,000 hl (10.2 million cases) of wine. There are 16 DOC and 5 DOCG wines, these spread throughout the Marche region, thus confirming the high level of quality reached by this wonderful regions wine production. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
