Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red color with lightly garnet hues. The nose is complex and intense with notes of ripened black fruits such as plum and cherry as well as a bouquet of spices and flowers. On the palate it is smooth and well-structured with balanced tannins, fruits and spices. It is persistent, well-structured and shows a final aromatic note.

Pair with steak, cheese and pasta.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Rich black fruit with hints of iodine (almost sea urchin-like) and long-empty cigar box. Full-bodied with juicy fruit and well-integrated tannins that push out more pure fruit as they gradually firm up, to produce a long, long finish. This is still pretty much in nascent state and will need at least another couple of years for the evident complexity to spread right through the wine. Should be worth the wait. Try from 2024.

Velenosi, Italy
Velenosi Winery Video
Located just outside of the town of Ascoli Piceno, Velenosi is a dynamic estate headed by the charismatic and skilled Angela Velenosi. The estate is included in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production subzone, a privileged area included in the much larger zone of Rosso Piceno. While Rosso Piceno is produced in a rather vast hilly area of the Marche, only the very limited zone within the province of Ascoli Piceno, with its special microclimate and pedologic conditions that extend over fourteen municipalities of this province, is designated Superiore. In addition to Rosso Piceno Superiore, which is generally cited smong the top wines in the Marche, Velenosi also produces a Bordeauz-style IGT Marche called Ludi that is widely considered one of the top Italian wines. The potential of this terroir combined with the work of Attilio Pagli at the helm of the winemaking has lead Velenosi to be recognized as a leading producer in Italy and around the world.

Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended red wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged resulting in a wide variety of red wine styles. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a red wine blend variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.

How to Serve Red Wine

A common piece of advice is to serve red wine at “room temperature,” but this suggestion is imprecise. After all, room temperature in January is likely to be quite different than in August, even considering the possible effect of central heating and air conditioning systems. The proper temperature to aim for is 55° F to 60° F for lighter-bodied reds and 60° F to 65° F for fuller-bodied wines.

How Long Does Red Wine Last?

Once opened and re-corked, a bottle stored in a cool, dark environment (like your fridge) will stay fresh and nicely drinkable for a day or two. There are products available that can extend that period by a couple of days. As for unopened bottles, optimal storage means keeping them on their sides in a moderately humid environment at about 57° F. Red wines stored in this manner will stay good – and possibly improve – for anywhere from one year to multiple decades. Assessing how long to hold on to a bottle is a complicated science. If you are planning long-term storage of your reds, seek the advice of a wine professional.
