Ciu Ciu Baccus Rosso Piceno

The farm was established in 1970 in Contrada Ciafone (Offida area) and is under now the direction of the Bartolomei brothers, Massimiliano and Walter who make their wines using, Organic viticulture.

So-named because the current owner's great grandfather worked for the local railway company, this 150-hectare, Organic estate was established in 1970 in Contrada Ciafone, on the Adriatic coast of Le Marche and is now under the direction of brothers Massimiliano and Walter Bartolomei. The vineyards lie among the rolling hills of the countryside in Le Marche's Offida region where the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, combined with 300m of altitude create a unique micro-climate which ensures exceptional growing conditions. This juicy red comes from vines grown in the heart of the Rosso Piceno production area and is a 50/50 blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Best drunk young and can be chilled.

Bacchus is the God of wine also known as Dioniso. He was son of Zeus and brother of Apollo and use to have an equally as important task, which is to pour wine during their dines and bacchanalias.

Tasting Notes

Vermilion in colour, it's rose scented underneath with a layer of strawberry aromas coming through as you drink it. On the palate it got succulent berry flavours with a gentle spiciness, soft texture and a mere hint of supple tannins. It's at it's best as a young and fresh wine and is good served very slightly chilled.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
