Cosmino Rosso Marche IGT
Marche

The name of this single vineyard wine is a diminutive of Cosmo, one of Count Brachetti Peretti’s grandchildren. It is a powerful, almost austere, wine that owes its intensity and volume to the grapes selection and the terroir. The first vintage of the Cosmino Rosso was 2001.
