This elegant wine with a big structure offers a wealth of aromas and substantial longevity. Those premium characteristics are due to a low yield per acre, delayed harvesting of selected grapes and maturation in steel vats for at least one year before bottling.
Selection of the best grapes and yields in the vineyard that are deliberately kept low give this wine big structure. It is matured for one to two years in small French oak barrels and spends nearly two years in the bottle before it is released for consumption. The most impressive characteristic of the wine is its aroma of cherries, which is typical of Rosso Cònero. It blends harmoniously with scents of wood. The wine is suitable for prolonged aging.
This highly structured wine is produced only in exceptional years, after careful selection of the finest grapes and with vineyard yield deliberately kept low. It is matured for nearly two years in oak barriques and for the same amount of time in the bottle before it is put on the market. Big on character, the wine’s scents of marasca cherry typical of Montepulciano grapes blend elegantly with those of wood. Suitable for lengthy ageing.
Garofoli produces its wine in two locations. The winery at Serra de' Conti, located in the classic production zone of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi wine, vinifies the Verdicchio grapes using the most modern techniques. The grapes used in the production of Rosso Cònero are vinified in the winery at Castelfidardo, located in the production zone. In addition, the winery also vinifies the grapes for Rosso Piceno as well as other non-D.O.C. white and red grapes. The Castelfidardo winery is also the site of wine maturation and ageing, the preparation of sparkling wines and bottling. The company’s administrative and sales offices are housed in the Castelfidardo winery.
