Buy Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno Superiore Vigna Montetinello
Wine Advocate 88 points - One of the more brooding wines in the lineup, Saladini Pilastri’s 2010 Rosso Piceno Superiore Vigna Montetinello is a big boy. Tar, smoke, licorice and earthiness fill out a baritone register full of dark aromas and flavors. Montepulciano takes the lead in this intense, rich Rosso Piceno. I have a slight preference for some of the more refined wines in this range, but it is impossible not to admire the Montetinello for its quality and overall value. There is no shortage of intensity or richness here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. (Feb 2013)

Wine maker notes
Tradition is the inspiring muse that has led us to isolate and process separetely the grapes from the Montetinello vineyard. The great concentration and consistency of this wine are due to the dominating percentage of Montepulciano, compared to Sangiovese, and to the favourable position of the 30-year-old vineyard only a few kilometres from the Adriatic coast.

The history of Count Saladini Pilastri dates back to the year 1000; a noble family from Ascoli Piceno that boasts of a rich and fascinating past whose ancestors were priests and leaders. The deep antique roots of the family are a heredity for the present; it is a heredity of long lives of tradition over the centuries of history. The vineyard activity has always coincided with the value and culture of the land from which it belongs. Count Saladini Pilastri’s farm began three centuries ago; the land has always produced wine. Originally the tenant farmers gave up their wine to the Counts so they could age it in the so called ”barriques”, the famous durmast barrel. From the 1970’s new vines were planted; the present canteen was constructed beside the old one so that all the production could be kept in the same place. The Saladini Pilastri winery binds the knowledge of an antique tradition with the guarantee of advanced technology. It is a matter of fact the vines born on this small hanker chief of Marche land are exported to America, Europe and Asia and they are appreciated by the most sophisticated tastes. The flavour of this wine unites the perfumes and colours of its land; the care with which it is produced and the knowledge of an antique art.
