Vigneti Del Cerro Verdicchio Di Matelica

This 300 hectare co-operative is situated in Matelica, which is a smaller zone than Castelli di Jesi. The co-operative has 24 organically cultivated vineyards that are situated further inland than Castelli di Jesi, where the climate is more continental, and this is where they source grapes for their organic 'Vigneti B' Verdicchio. Here, the combination of warm days and cool nights allows the aromatic qualities of the grapes to develop and extends the growing season, so that harvest takes place as late as the second half of October.

Vineyards

The grapes for this wine come from a south-facing single vineyard, located at 360 metres above sea level. The vines were planted between 1999-2000. The vines are planted at a density of 1,666 to 3,500 plants per hectare and yield approximately seven tonnes per hectare.

Vinification

The grapes were pressed and the must cold settled before fermentation took place at 13°C for 22 days. The wine was then aged for five months in stainless-steel tanks before bottling.

Tasting Notes

This wine is pale lemon in colour with green highlights. On the nose, it has abundant aromas of ripe citrus fruit. The palate shows refreshing acidity, interesting mineral characters, a light hint of ripe apple and a final burst of zingy lemon to lift the finish. This is a beautifully balanced wine, with a soft mouthfeel that retains a wonderful lifted, fresh character.
