The hills surrounding the town of Pesaro, situated in the north of the Marches Region, are areas characterized by great ancient history, traditions and memories connected to famous aristocratic families such as Da Montefeltro, Malatesta, Sforza and Della Rovere.

Those hills, made up of sand, tuff and clay, have vineyards located in the middle of cultivated lands and woodlands.

The following wine is born on those hills:

 

ALIUS 2009

Marche IGT Cabernet

 

The production area is the same as that of the vineyard called “Le Terrazze”, where the sea influences this land with its micro-climate.The hill where the vineyard is situated slopes to the beach, and the salty marine breeze adds salty sea perfume to the vineyard. No natural barriers stop the gusting wind called bora, no natural barriers stop the violent summer storms. That is why the exposure to sunlight is generous: the sun warms and illuminates the vineyard and enriches the cabernet grapes with sugars.

 

Sensory evaluation:

 

Thick, dark ruby red colour with slight maroon colour shades, clear and concentrated. From the olfactory point of view, it is a complex wine with fruits such as blackberry,marasca cherry, blueberry and currant jam, red flowers such as wisteria, iris andwithered red rose. Intense minerality thanks to its proximity to the sea, with Mediterranean fragrance. Warm soft sip, with well blended, silky tannins in its freshness.
