Serrone - Marche rosso IGT


Serrone was born from an idea of Claudio Di Ruscio returning from a trip first to France and then to Bolgheri. After that trip, he desired to experience an international blend in our territory. The challenge was to produce great wines. He identified the most suitable area in Monte Serrone (hence the name of the wine) and planted the first scions in 1999.

Before bottling, the grapes age in small oak vats and then assembled. The destemmed and crushed grapes are placed in conical trunk vats where the fermentation starts spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, without controlled temperature. After 7-8 days, selected yeasts are added and the fermentation is completed, while maceration continues for about 20-25 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation and ageing in small oak barrels for 12 months.

Organoleptic properties

Deep ruby red wine with purple hues. Scents of cherry, ripe blackberry, wild berries and maraschino stand out first on the nose. Eucalyptus and pepper then give balsamic and spicy notes enhanced by marked but elegant tannins. Masculine, balanced, persistent wine.

Food pairings

Perfect with pasta with tomato sauce, legume soup, lamb, goat and meat dishes with aromatic herbs.


Store the bottle horizontally, preferably in a dark and silent environment, with a temperature between 15 - 18 degrees and a humidity of around 50%. The wine lends itself to a further 15-20 years ageing.
