PICENO D.O.P. SUPERIORE

Tasting

Piceno DOP Superiore from Cantina Offida is produced only in the best vintages with 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese, and it ages in 5000 liters barrels for about one year and a half. The production area is limited to few villages around Offida: these territories have in fact similar soil and climate characteristics: vineyards on steep hills; clay terroirs, mostly exposed to the south; particularly sunny areas, suitable to the good maturation of the grapes. The wine that comes from these lands is slightly tannic, powerful but smooth, with a very good structure.
