Bisci Rosso 2018
The wine is made from a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese, with prevalence of the first and in varying percentages depending on the vintages. Bothe red grapes are cultivated with modified spurred cordon and with a very small number of gems. The grapes are harvested in early October. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks. After about 9 months of aging in neutral vessels, the wine is bottled at before being released to the market not before he spent 3 months in the bottle for aging. The 2018 Marche Rosso blossoms in the glass with a pretty display of dusty rose, incense, strawberries and cedar spice box. It’s silky-smooth, almost creamy in feel, with depths of ripe red berries, licorice and sweet inner herbal tones, all energized by vibrant acidity. A coating of fine tannins punctuates the expression well, as this tapers off lightly structured and perfumed. There’s so much balanced pleasure to be found in this blend of 80% Merlot to 20% Sangiovese. However, I recommend another year of cellaring for it to fully blossom.
