Offida, Piceno

Velenosi

Villa Angela Offida Pecorino

My first Pecorino, it was a recommendation from our favorite local Italian restaurant when they were out of the bottle of Vermentino I had ordered. Crisp, refreshing, citrus and high acid. Held up nicely with the pasta and chicken dishes we had. — 4 days ago

Testamozza Piceno Sangiovese 2018

Sooo good. Tons of dark ripe fruit and something unique I can’t put a name on. Medium bodied. Bit acidic finish. Easy and smooth. — 2 months ago

Tenuta Pongelli Rosso Piceno Montepulciano Sangiovese 2014

Excellent wine. Nose smells of an old wine cellar: grapes, must, little earth and sweet. This is a 50/50 Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Sangiovese is not as dynamic here as in Tuscany. But the Montepulciano is awesome here, and it’s such an underrated grape. The blend is seamless and is so good. With tomato..mmmmmm! — 2 months ago

Offida DOCG Pecorino

Found this on sale for under $10.

Under. Ten. Dollars.

Some water is more expensive... that being said, it tastes better than most wines that cost double.

Morellone Rosso Piceno 2015

Very pleasant surprise. I’ve had ‘10-12 I believe, but this was on another level. Elegant and textured, silky smooth. Good length and complexity, with the bright Sangiovese notes peaking through on the close. The nose, rather typical of a brawny multiplicano d’Abruzzo, doesn’t do the palate justice. — 2 months ago

It’s so weird to me that it seems like there are lots of Picenos around but not Coneros, which come from a better (IMHO) terroir. Still, I’ll try any Marche red not aged in f*#%ing French barriques.

@Tom Casagrande i should do more research but always have had the impression that, in the Marche, producer matters more than terroir. Hopefully that’s changing. In any case...This is one of my favorite producers. The winemaker admitted to me, in person, that he makes this Morellone for himself, while the other serious red (Nero di vite) is for the “international market. “

Monte Schiavo

Sassaiolo Rosso Piceno 2016

Would be great with bacon wrapped spicy pork and apples with butter greens — a month ago

Garofoli

Farnio Rosso Piceno 2017

A really good weeknight wine. Nose is animated, with lots of dark cherry and warm brick minerality. Round and directly fruity in the mouth, bone dry, with a finish that turns a bit savory. Good balance. Not complex but has character. One of the better Picenos I’ve had. HT to my bro for this one. — a month ago

Just found out the importer isn’t importing this or the garofoli Rosso conero anymore. Bummed.

Rosso picenos are often 50/50. Rosso Conero is a much smaller area and has to be at least 90% montepulciano, and most are 100%. And Tom, you’re right. The old school rustic ones are unique. Here in CT. , now, I’m not sure there are any Rosso Conero available.
