Grape: Sangiovese, Montepulciano
Viticulture: Organic Farming
This organic wine from Marche is a blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Produced by the Azienda Vitivinicola Ciu Ciu, the vineyards lie in the hills of the La Marche Offida region which has an altitude of 300m and is close to the Mediterranean resulting in perfect growing conditions as the grapes don't ripen too quickly. The ethos in the vineyard is to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible, growing organically.
This is a classic example of a Marche red - full bodied with dense fruits. The Bacchus is packed with strawberry flavours and dark cherries with an underlying leather note.
