Ciù Ciù Bacchus Rosso Piceno D.O.P., Vineto, Italy, 2019 (750ml)
Equal parts Montepulciano and Sangiovese, grown in mixed clay soils 300m on the Marches hills surrounding the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province. This unoaked red is meant to be enjoyed in youth, within 2-3 years of release. With an intense and fruit rich nose, this medium to full bodied red is round and supple, with great purity of fruit. The fresh acidity keeps it light on its feet, and the tannins are ripe and silky.
