After discovering last month, the Passerina from the same producer, a little fun white with fruity (not sweet) touch to drink as an aperitif and enjoy anytime. Here is its sibling, the Rosso Piceno. Made from 50% Montepulciano and 50% Sangiovese, this juicy little red wine, somewhat simple yet friendly, is very enjoyable and definitely inoffensive. It offers nice, soft red cherry aromas, very good acidity and balance, with slight earthy tannins in the finish. An excellent value and a good choice for the long awaited yet not completely there, Spring season.
