Plus it looks elegant and cool. It is a simple and uncomplicated wine tale accented with tradition, organics and unusual corks. Centanni Winery continues the tradition through their use of 100% organic practices to produce the uncomplicated, medium light wine, Centanni Monte Floris 2013, made from 100% Montepulciano grapes [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

This wine has the ancient name of the Montefiore dell'Aso village where the winery is based. The bottle is elegant, the cork unusual. This is an excellent red wine, made by a skilled winery

Tasting Le Marche - Centanni Family of Wines

Tasting Le Marche - Centanni Family of Wines | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Last week and Tuesday night (with one more session next Tuesday night), we learned about and started tasting wines from the Italian wine area Le Marche. Our host (and wine supplier) was Jonathan Zeiger of ZGR Imports. The region is in the central area on the east coast of Italy. Up first for tasting were two wines, a white and a red, from the Centanni Family of Wines.

Centanni Family of Wines is ZGR’s first brand. This family-owned, boutique winery is located in Montefiore dell’Aso, of the Ascoli Piceno province. Winemaking has been the family craft for over a century, the business name translating literally to 100 Years. Their estate vineyards are Certified Organic by the EU governing body. The Centanni Family  utilize VinoLok glass tops, which eliminate the risk of cork taint, allow for easy opening and resealing, and minimize additional oxidation on an open bottle. They were certainly a surprise when we peeled back the top wrapping. 
Tasting Notes:
Pecorino 2012, Offida D.O.C.G. [...]

Rosso di Forca 2012, Rosso Piceno D.O.C. [...]
