Velenosi Il Brecciarolo Rosso Piceno Superiore 2005
In addition to Rosso Piceno Superiore, which is widely cited as one of the top wines in the Marche, Velenosi, under the skilled hand of Attilio Pagli, also produces an impressive Pecorino and the acclaimed Bordeaux-style IGT Marche called Ludi.
Located just outside of the town of Ascoli Piceno, Velenosi is a dynamic estate headed by the charismatic and skilled Angela Velenosi. The estate is included in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production subzone, a privileged area included in the much larger zone of Rosso Piceno. While Rosso Piceno is produced in a rather vast hilly area of the Marche, only the very limited zone within the province of Ascoli Piceno, with its special microclimate and pedologic conditions that extend over fourteen municipalities of this province, is designated Superiore.
