Rosso Conero is a wine appellation in the central part of the Marche region of Italy just south of Ancona on the slopes of Monte Conero. The red wine made here is based on the Montepulciano grape which must comprise 85% of the wine. If another grape is used, it is commonly Sangiovese.
Rosso Conero is a full-bodied wine that is well suited to robust dishes such as game stews.
If the wine has been matured for longer than two years and has a minimum alcohol level of 12.5% then it can be labelled as Rosso Conero Riserva.
Other appellations in the Marche region are:
  Bianchello del Metauro
Colli Maceratesi
Colli Pesaresi
Falerio dei Colli Ascolani
Lacrima di Morro d'Alba
Offida Passerina
Offida Pecorino
Offida Rosso
Rosso Piceno
Terreni di San Severino
Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi
Verdicchio di Matelica
