The wines from Maurizio Marchetti are some of our top selling Italian reds, including his joint venture with friend Antonio Sanguineti called Due Amici. This is his flagship estate wine produced from the 400 acres estate on the coast of the Marche. 

For red wine, the dominant grape of the region is Montepulciano blended with 10% Sangiovese. Marchetti’s vineyards lie on the south side of the Ensino River, where the soil is mostly clay and limestone so his wines have bigger shoulders and more dimension than most other Rosso Conero. If you don’t like Italian wines because they are too light, this one should be a revelation for you. 

The color is deep garnet and there is pretty good staining in the tears. The nose is a heady combination of fresh blackberries, some black cherry, black tea, dried sage and saddle leather. In the mouth, this wine shows a big first impression of black fruits then develops a firm, muscular frame that holds everything in place into a long finish. Drink this wine over the next three years with braised meats or grilled sausages.
