Antica Azienda Agricola Vagnoni Molina

The old farm, Vagnoni Molina, is a small viniculture of Piceno located in southern Marche, near the town of Offida, very close to the border of Abruzzo. The most common grape varieties grown in Piceno are Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Merlot, Passerina and Pecorino. This Passerina is the finest example we have tasted of this grape variety, a grape we were uninterested in until being unanimously won over by the inherent quality of this wine.

New! Made with Organic Grapes.

Tasting Notes: It has a delicate, flowery nose, redolent of honey and yellow fruit, with lemony overtones, and a hint of mineral on the finish, perhaps from the clay soils of the vineyard.
