The Quintana is a historical re-enactment, but first and foremost a festival, an occasion to celebrate the history and identity of Ascoli Piceno. For the occasion, we have dedicated a special edition of Rosso Piceno DOC Superiore precisely to the Joust of the Quintana. The label was created by Giuseppe Solimando, the painter who could best express the soul and emotions of this city. The label gives us a colourful and fairy-tale version of the Quintana, making Ascoli an enchanted place where knights and ladies live again.
