Il Pollenza
Il Pollenza Rosso Marche IGT

Il Pollenza, the flagship of the winery, displays the elegance and fine balance that one expects from a noble Bordeaux-style wine. This is precisely what Count Brachetti Peretti desires; an elegance pursued with total commitment. There is an increasingly specialised focus on the selection of the grapes to create the finest blend.
