Le Caniette Morellone Rosso Piceno 2008
Wine SpectatorA juicy, medium-bodied red, with light grip to the tannins framing the flavors of crushed plum and mulberry, ground anise, espresso and grilled herb. Chewy finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,085 cases made.
Wine AdvocateMade with organically-farmed fruit, the 2008 Rosso Piceno Morellone is a blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese. The bouquet is forthcoming and bright with dried cherry, Mediterranean herb and dusty licorice. The wine offers medium intensity and texture. This informal and approachable style would work next to pasta piled high with grated Parmigiano cheese.
