The Montepulciano grape is widely grown throughout central Italy, but rarely does it produce wines as intense, refined and terroir-driven as Rosso Conero - the plummy, forceful red that hails from the slopes of Monte Conero in the Marche region, a stone’s throw from the Adriatic Sea. Five generations of the Garofoli family have produced wine here since 1871. Pinacarda, their ultimate expression of Montepulciano, is a brilliant ruby red and opens with complex, persistent aromas of ripe cherries, plums, blackberries and earth. Bold berry flavors, a smoky note from a year of oak aging, elegant tannins and juicy acidity round out a rich but pleasantly mellow structure. Both soft and substantial, the wine finishes long and savory. It is exceptionally versatile, able to be paired with a broad range of roasted meats, hearty pasta dishes, game, stews and well-aged cheeses. The 2012 vintage is a Tre Biccheri winner from Gambero Rosso and received a bronze medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
Technical notes
Montepulciano picked from the hills of Monte Conero was fermented in tank for 7-10 days and matured for 12 months in cask.

Food pairing
Consume if laid down properly, the wine can age for three to four years or in exceptional vintages up to 10 years Food matches it combines perfectly with roasted meats, aged cheeses and game Serving temperature 18 °C (64 °F)

Producer
The origins of the Garofoli winery date from the end of the 19th century, from 1871, when Antonio Garofoli had already began the production and sale of local wines. His son Gioacchino continued and expanded the paternal business. In 1901, he founded the Gioacchino Garofoli winery. His two sons, Franco and Dante, succeeded him in management of the estate after World War II. Gioacchino Garofoli became a company in 1950 and embarked on a process of strong development.. Following tradition, Franco’s sons, Carlo and Gianfranco, joined the family company’s staff in the early seventies. They worked together with the preceding generation for more than 20 years and they energetically promoted further development of the winery from both the production and commercial standpoints. The Gioacchino Garofoli winery is now a joint-stock company. Brothers Gianfranco and Carlo currently head it as chairman and vice chairman, respectively. The history of the Garofolis is a story of people and of a family that has been identified with winemaking for four generations. The same philosophy has always guided the house: a constant updating of production techniques while respecting traditional and historic winemaking methods; attention to the evolution of the market and its requirements along with loyalty to the values of the special characteristics that the traditions of the territory have transmitted. In September of 2005 the fifth generation entered the Garofoli company: Caorlois daughter Beatrice and Gianfranco’s daughter and son, Caterina and Gianluca.
