From the moment we learned about this wine, we were fans. It has a character all its own, drinks beautifully and plays well with food and all by itself. This wine has done the heavy lifting at many parties, tasting and Sunday dinners. You can't miss. 

The winery motto is "solchi radici sogni" which means "furrows roots dream". We don't understand it either, but the wines of Ciu Ciu are wonderful and expressive.

Produced in the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province.

This ruby red wine, with purple shades tending to orange is a product of Montepulciano and Sangiovese vines that are carefully grown on the Marches hills. The wine is harmoniously delicate and tannic. It is dry, full bodied and tastes faintly tannic. It expresses its finest characteristics between the first and the second year of its life, although further maturation gives it a greater equilibrium and smoothness.

Marche, is one of Italy's lesser known wine regions and sits on the Adriatic coast across the Apennines from Tuscany. However there's plenty going on in these parts with some excellent and good value nuggets to be found. This Rosso Picenco is, we reckon, one such example. It's a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese which is fermented and aged in stainless steel. Bright red in colour, it's rose scented underneath with a layer of strawberry aromas coming through as you drink it. On the palate it got succulent berry flavours with a gentle spiciness, soft texture and a mere hint of supple tannins. At it's best young and fresh it's a wine which shines even more when served very slightly chilled.
