Marchetti, Castro di San Silvestro Rosso Conero DOC
Castro di San Silvestro Rosso Conero DOC


Tasting Notes: Famiglia Marchetti has been making wine in the Marche region for over a century, and for at least 50 years, have produced one of the top Montepulcianos (Rosso Conero) made anywhere. Marche produces the greatest, most elegant expression of the Montepulciano grape; and few, if any, are making this wine better than Maurizio Marchetti. Known for his impeccable Verdicchio in the States, he is famous for his red Montepulciano back home in Ancona. Laced with an intriguing smoky, cranberry spice and ripe plums, this is an everyday favorite for both sides of the Atlantic.
