Conero Riserva 'Nerone' DOCG, Moncaro
Deep ruby red colour tending to purple. Bouquet is superbly aromatic, with great length and intensity, redolent of sour cherries, plum jam and ultra-elegant notes of dried violets. Emerging from the background are intriguing evolved nuances of creamy spice: pepper, cinnamon and liquorice. Fine tobacco, cacao and roasted coffee are the heritage of the wine’s barrique ageing. Stunning.
Palate: firm and impressive structure. The alcoholic warmth perfectly balances the elegant and fine-grained tannins. The finish is intense, long and fully harmonious.

Grape Varieties :
The traditionally-matured grapes are immediately de-stemmed and pressed, while for the dried grapes we wait for at least 50 days. The must is fermented in small cement vats, with frequent pumpovers each day, and the maceration on the skins lasts numerous days. the wine is drawn off and matures 15 months in barriques and a further year in the bottle.
