SALINE

Municipality

Ancona

Area

Conero

In the mid Seventies, the Saline holding was partially planted to vine for the production of Rosso Conero. The site was so good that subsequently the entire estate was converted to grape-growing and today is one of the most important plantings in the entire growing zone for Rosso Conero.

A number of different varieties are grown at Saline as well as montepulciano and sangiovese.
