Almajano Colli Maceratesi Rosso DOC Riserva
Traveling along a secondary road to Appignano, you can find the remains of an old church, Santa Maria di Almajano. Such name derives from the god “Almus”, the one that gives comfort, and its adoration. The same love for traditions brought us to rescue the Vernaccia Nera and Lacrima vineyard varieties, that together with Sangiovese give birth to this Riserva of Colli Maceratesi Rosso.
