100% Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, fruits sourced from a micro 0.8h parcel sitting at 350 metres above sea level. The wine is fermented and aged in seasoned oak and is also aged for 12 months in barrel. Fermentation is spontaneous and there is a minimum addition of sulphur at bottling.
Brilliant pale straw to straw colour with a watery hue. Intense pear skin, green to red apple and guava scents infused with a mixture of fresh herbs, wet slate and minerals jump out of the glass. Racy juicy pear and green to red apple fruits are underscored by crisp saline like acidity with notions of limes, injections of Mediterranean herbs and flinty mineral characters ensuing. Tense, elegant feel. Finishes dry and crunchy with a long zippy saline and almond laced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 12.5%
