Castellano® - Rosso Piceno DOC Superiore 2019
“If you want to enter Ripatransone, only the Castellan can let you pass.” It is said that in the past, to protect one of the city gates, a knight would forever memorise the face of anyone passing through, distinguishing whether they had good or bad intentions at a mere glance. Benevolent, but dressed in shining armour, he bravely defended the town: his name is Transone from the Latin verb ‘transire’, which means to cross or enter. For friends today, it is Castellano, with this Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC
