Garofoli Rosso Conero 'Piancarda'

Regular price $18.99

The Piancarda vineyard is Garofoli's top source for Montepulciano grapes, located in Marche's top denominations for Montepulciano-based wines. The Piancarda wine, using 100% Montepulciano from this vineyard, is a classic expression of this grape variety. The name Piancarda comes from Biancarda, which was the historical name of the area, referring the white (bianca) limestone-rich soil.

'The 2020 Rosso Conero Piancarda, a varietal Montepulciano, lifts from the glass with a dusty mix of dried roses, red currants and hints of nectarine that form a truly inviting bouquet. This is silky and elegant, nearly creamy in feel, yet elevated and cool-toned, with mineral-laced wild berries and a salty flourish that adds a savory sensation toward the close. The 2020 leaves a coating of fine tannins, as inner florals arch across the palate, and a caking of minerality slowly fades away. The warm vintage has imparted an extra suave character here, yet the Piancarda’s structure and acidity are nicely balanced and should promote medium-term cellaring. Lose a few bottles in the cellar; you’ll thank me later.' - Vinous Media, 90+ points
