Conero, Ancona


Piancarda Rosso Conero Montepulciano 2020

Happy agreement between Italianismo (made up the word for Italian wines' ability to be indelibly Italian) and rusticity. The nose is prettily tart--blood orange and lavender. The palate brings slightly rough in a pleasant way. Savory but a little bloody with an earthy metallic zing running through it. I didn't expect to be as into this as I am but here we are. INTO it. — a month ago

Intense and interesting white from this sometimes underrated grape. Punchy acidity, yellow orchard fruits, nutty bitterness and a persistent mineral driven finish. — 3 months ago
