The name of Cantina dei Colli Ripani’s rosé wine “Il Vicolo” takes us to one of the many unique places of Ripatransone (a picturesque and old town in the Marche Region of the province of Ascoli Piceno), where there is the narrowest alley in Italy. The winery came up with this name to suggest its capacity to express in a glass the determination to cross a very narrow street in order to enjoy all the viewpoints that open up.

“Il Vicolo” is a blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes that have undergone careful management to produce a delicate and vibrant pink hue with a superb appearance and aromatic promise. “Il Vicolo” is fresh, fruity, ample and intriguing. It has outstanding pleasantness and balance, in the mouth it is full and mineral, and it delivers a surprising power in contrast to the delicacy of its lovely color.Long and lasting aftertaste, complemented by sapidity and a very lovely acidity that recalls the drink beautifully.

This wine’s packaging is elegant and beautifully integrated, which helps it express the value of its content as well as its uniqueness. A rosé that is genuinely pleasant and soft, with a personality that shines through at the table with simple dishes like a good plate of spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce or white meat rolls, perhaps toasting for succeeding in crossing the narrow alley and thus appreciating the perspectives of the journey.
