The red wine Rosso Piceno DOC is grown in a large area in the eastern part of Marche, between Ascoli Piceno in the South, and Senigallia in the North. The wine has a more or less intense ruby red color, which turns to garnet red with age. The taste may vary, regulations allowing a grape composition consisting of Montepulciano (35-70%), Sangiovese (30-50%), with the permitted addition of local non-aromatic red grapes (0-15%).

Some producers are experimenting with pure Sangiovese wines, but the highest quality is achieved after a nice shot of Montepulciano.

Rosso Piceno DOC is a wine with a characteristic bouquet and a dry, harmonious and balanced taste.

The wine is also available as a barrel-aged Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC.
