The wine is made from vines averaging over 11 years old, grown at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level with south-west exposure in clayey-limey soil, undergoing 6 days of skin contact in stainless steel vats, followed by one year in stainless steel and at least 3 months of bottle fining before release. Great, honest Montepulciano.

Notes on the producer

The Malacari family have been a landowner in the Marche region for more than 500 years around the little town of Offagna. Most of their land was cultivated with cereals, olives and vines. In 1668, the Villa Malacari was built to be used as a winery, storage for cereals and as an olive mill. Since then the Malacari’s have expanded generation after generation to now boast 100 hectares and counting. Today, Alessandro Starrabba, owner of the Azienda Agricola, produces Rosso Conero from 16 hectares of vineyards; 9 of the which are dated 1971 and the other 7 dated 2000.

The vineyards are all planted with Montepulciano and are situated around the hill of Grigiano at about 210 metres asl and all facing south. In the cellar, Alessandro has made some major changes in the structure and equipment since 1997 and together with oenologist Sergio Paolucci, started a new culture for his wines, aiming only for high standard, fineness, and character without loosing the style of the Conero.
