Method & Production

The grapes for this Verdicchio di Matelica are all carefully selected and hand harvested. Fermentation takes place in cement barrels and after racked into stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for around 6 to 7 months in stainless steel and then a further 3 months in bottle.

Tasting notes

Very clean nose of white flowers, white peach and citrus. Mineral notes shine through. On the palate it is driven by the minerality (wet stones & salinity) accompanied by white flowers and zingy citrus. Incredible acidity which lingers on the palate and the mineral taste supports this.

Food matching

Salt cod with a beurre blanc
