Marche wines

A Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC from Fiorano
A Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC from Fiorano

The Picenum province in the Marche region enjoys a deserved reputation for the rich aroma and velvety smoothness of its high-quality wines. In particular, there’s an inner circle of 13 Piceni villages that have won acclaim for producing their famous DOC Rosso Piceno Superiore. This is one of the area’s best known signature wines with its intense ruby red colour, violet overtones, and a mature red fruit aroma with blackberry to the fore. It has a sweet soft flavour with a long-lasting and harmonious appeal in the mouth. At Azienda Agricola Fiorano, Paolo produces not only a great Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC and a Sangiovese but also a Pecorino - a particular white wine which is made from indigenous Pecorino grapes, a very old vine of the Picenum province of Marche region. All the wines and also the olive oil produced at Fiorano is organic. www.agrifiorano.it
