The great painter Michelangelo gave the name morellone to his darkest red color and it is only fitting that this name be applied to this intense, almost impenetrable, ruby red wine. A blend of Montepulciano (70%) and Sangiovese (30%), Morellone displays an intense bouquet of forest berry fruit along with vegetal notes and spice. The Fruit is backed by some acidity and well balanced with smooth tannins on the finish. Pairs well with rich meals, grilled or stewed red meats, and aged cheeses.

Made 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.

A 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.
