    Winemaker Notes

    The name "Ricco" (Rich) refers to our rich blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes all grown, fermented and vinted in stainless steel at controlled temperature. Ricco showcases the best quality of each variety: the intense bouquet of mature fruits from the Sangiovese, the soft tannins from the Merlot and the rich cherry flavor from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

    A delicious accompaniment to beef, pizza, hard cheeses, or pasta with tomato sauce.

    Carletto, Marche, Italy
    Image of winery
    Armando De Zan, owner of Candoni wines, created Carletto to honor his beloved uncle. A Cavaliere del Lavoro, or "Commander of the Order for Merit Recognition", Uncle Carletto was an Italian agronomist known for his outstanding viticultural work uncovering the most authentic Italian native varietals. Armando features these traditions and varietals in his lineup of wines sourced from Italy's most important wine regions.

    Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
