2012 Moncaro, Rosso Piceno among the Top 10 wines in the UK press

2012 Moncaro, Rosso Piceno among the Top 10 wines in the UK press | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Matthew Jukes recommended this wine in the Daily Mail, writing: “With simple, juicy red fruit and a lovely tang of acidity on the finish you might dismiss this wine as being rather one-dimensional, but there is charm and character here in this delightful little chap and it’s a bargain, too. A superb party wine for all palates I highly recommend Moncaro. (£5.59, Waitrose).”

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.
