Il Casolare – Fattoria San Lorenzo, Marche, San Lorenzos

il Cassolare

The Cottage. I first tried this with Doug McCoy in San Lorenzos and we both really enjoyed it over a nice meal.

An Organic Montepulciano (actually Rosso Piceno) and Sangiovese blend, we found it fruity, mellow and dry, with a nice finish. Good company helps of course.

Made by Natalino Crognaletti of the Fattoria San Lorenzo in Montecarotto, Marche. More here: http://www.indiewineries.com/wine.php?id=19 and here http://www.wineanorak.com/italy/sanlorenzo.htm. San Lorenzo was awarded the Chiocciola (Snail) in 2011, the Slow Wine Guide’s highest accolade.

This ‘ Rosso ‘ of the Montepulciano grape is in fact a classified Rosso Piceno. He comes under the lower IGT-status on the market to keep the costs as low as possible. – See more at: http://www.bottles-online.com/il-casolare-rosso.html#sthash.NNP27XFT.dpuf

It was expensive in the eponymous Restaurant San Lorenzo at around €30 a bottle and Mitchells have it at €13.99 – expensive for the off trade. Bottles online in Holland have it for €7.99.
