Rosso Piceno or Piceno DOC is a red wine DOC dating from 1968 from the southern part of Italy’s Le Marche region. It is based on Sangiovese which can be bolstered by Montepulciano grapes. Oz Clarke (2011, p.95) describes Rosso Piceno as ‘the glugging red of holidaymakers on Italy’s sandy Adriatic coast.’
