Azienda Agraria Claudio Morelli has been growing grapes in Italy’s Marche region for decades. They decided to open a winery a dozen years and grow the regions native grape varietals on the vineyard close to the Adriatic Sea.
Claudio Morelli Colli Pesaresi, Terrazze, Sangiovese, 2012 is dark garnet red. Complex aromas of tart cherry, earth, leather, and cigar box emerge from the glass with each sniff. The palate is filled with red fruit, especially tart cherry, along with some slight earthiness and leather. This wine sees no oak aging and the aromas and flavors are influenced by the areas terroir and the winds from the Adriatic. The finish is medium with smooth tannins and a long dry finish.
Enjoy this wine with earthy wild mushrooms with a steak crusted in peppercorns.
