Rosso Piceno is a sprawling wine appellation in the central and southern part of the Marche region of Italy. The red wine made here is based on the Sangiovese grape and Montepulciano grape which must together comprise 85% of the wine. Trebbiano and Passerina can make up the remaining 15%.
There is also a higher alcohol version in the southern part of the appellation which classifies as Rosso Piceno Superiore provided it is aged for at least one year.
