Fattoria San Lorenzo, Rosso Piceno ‘di Gino’, 2020
Le Marche, Italy
Family operation dedicated to the production of organic and biodynamic wines in the farm that Natalino Crognaletti inherited from his father Gino, whom in his turn had inherited it from his father Enrico. Natalino lives on the estate with his wife, son, mother and the numerous farm animals for which he names his wines.
60% Montepulciano and 40% Sangiovese all hand harvested from organic vineyards of 4 hectares in Ostra Vetere, with southern exposure. Native fermentation. Fruity and aromatic, loaded with fresh berries, vegetal undertones this vintage and hints of tobacco. Enveloping, soft and balanced with zippy acidity and freshness. Consume at a slight chill and smash it with a plate of cured meats or pasta like a YouTuber would have you smash the like and subscribe buttons.
