Delicious red quality wine from the beautiful winery Velenosi from the Marche . This Roggio Del Filare is made from 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese grapes. Brilliant, shiny ruby red in color with light garnet hues, the wine is intense and complex on the nose due to the penetrating scents of dark, ripe fruits such as plums and blackberries, mixed with an extraordinary and fascinating bouquet of spices. On the palate, this wine confirms its great character and reveals its essence through a pulpy mouthfeel, velvety and with just the right touch of tannin, fruit and spice. The warm, lingering, full-bodied and well-orchestrated taste makes it a distinctive and charismatic wine.

Every year the Magazine GENTLEMAN publishes the list of 100 best red Italian wines. This magazine collects the results of the 6 most important Wine Guides (Gamberro Rosso, etc) and then makes an overall ranking of these, showing the Offida Rosso Ludi and Rosso Piceno Doc Superiore and the Roggio del Filare in 22 and 27 respectively. In addition, it is also worth mentioning that the Roggio del Filare has achieved the maximum score for 13 years in a row in the Gambero Rosso with 3 glasses.

- 97/100 points Luca Maroni
- Gambero Rosso: 3/3- Trebicchieri Gambero Rosso
- Bibenda: 5/5 ('16)
- Doctor Wine: 96/100

The grapes for this wine come from the vineyards of winery Velenosi. These vineyards are located in the municipalities of Offida and Ascoli Piceno and have mainly limestone-inclined clay soils. The average altitude of the vineyards is 200 meters above sea level. The grapes are harvested in mid-October, early morning or late afternoon, then placed in small trays and kept in cold cells before being taken to the winery.

After decanting, the grapes are placed in 100 hectolitre steel fermenters, equipped with a programmable pump-over system (to obtain the best results for color extraction and softness of the wine) and a temperature control system. Maceration on the skin takes about 28 days. After fermentation, the wine ages in new French barriques for about 18 months.

This beautiful wine is highly recommended to serve with a dinner with fine beef, veal and poultry. Also delicious with more luxurious pasta dishes.

Vineyard for 2018 Velenosi Roggio Del Filare Rosso Piceno DOC Superiore

Velenosi winery was founded in 1984 by two entrepreneurs Angela and Ercole Velenosi. Despite the relatively short period that they have been active in wine growing, their boundless passion for the profession has taught them quickly. They are proud, and rightly so, of their state-of-the-art wine company in the province of Marche (Marche) near Ascoli Piceno. The beautiful wines come from about 100 hectares that the domain is large.

Ercole and Angela always combined artisan tradition with advanced technology and interpret the winemaking process in a creative way. The company grew continuously, and in 2005 Paolo Garbini joined the board. Today Velenosi spreads the scents and colors of the Piceno territory all over the world with its unique wines.

Quality is very important to Angela and Ercole. This starts in the vineyards where Verdicchio, Pecorino, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Rosso Piceno Superiore are cultivated. Each wine is made according to a fixed and proven process, starting on the first day that the grapes reach the wine cellar. In its short existence, Velenosi has already enjoyed a wide appreciation of wine journalists and has won various awards from Robert Parker, Wine Spectator and Gambero Rosso ('Tre Bicchieri'), among others.
