Description

Rosso Piceno (DOC)

Rosso Piceno is one of our finest types of red wine that is exclusive to the Le Marche region of Italy. The name itself signifies its unique and far reaching ancestory with the name ‘Piceno’ dating back to the Picenes, the ancient tribe that dwelled within this region until the Roman conquered in 2nd Century BC. Legend has it that Hannabal the Carthaginian, during his conquests through Italy against the Roman Empire insisted on Rosso Piceno being served to his infantry as well as using the red wine to rub down his army’s horses. 

Antica Cantina Sant Amico is one only a few historic wine cellars still in existence to produce this DOC wine with vintages dating back to decades before the wine received it’s doc status in 1968.
