Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi is internationally known as one of the greatest Italian white wines for its unmistakable and rich personality and above all for its remarkable versatility. Verdicchio amazes for its greatly balanced taste, the result of a maturation with the wine staying in the tanks and/or in the steel containers and sometimes in large wooden barrels.
There are five types of Verdicchio: basic, classical, classical superior, passito and spumante. The production area is presently limited to the Marche region only, where it is cultivated on sunny hills, cooled by the constant breeze from the sea, which prevents moisture to deposit on the grapes.
Soft pressing of the whole grapes; fermentation at low temperature for 3-4 weeks;
Refinement “sur lies”; bottle refinement; excellent in the first two years and can be kept perfectly for 6 years.
