Organic Rosso from Puglia

Giancarlo Ceci’s 2005 Castel del Monte Rosso has arrived at Vino. Made near Vino owner Nicola Marzovilla’s home town of Rutigliano, Ceci’s Rosso is a blend of Uva di Troia, Montepulciano and Aglianico, three varieties typical of the area. A great value at $15.00, the wine is vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel and aged in steel and bottle. As is the case with most wines made with Uva di Troia, Ceci Rosso has firm tannins, moderate acidity and medium-to-full body.

Giancarlo Ceci began focusing on organic viticulture in 1988, a time when few producers in Puglia were interested in high-quality conventional production. From his family’s ancestral home near Andria in the Province of Bari, Giancarlo oversees Agrinatura, a company devoted to the cultivation, production and marketing of excellent organic comestibles. His wines are certified by the USDA-recognized ICEA and contain 100% organically-grown fruit.
