The Cantine Belisario co-operative was founded in 1971. Today, it is the biggest producer of Verdicchio in the Matelica DOC, a smaller zone than Castello di Jesi. The climate here is more continental than in Castelli di Jesi and the combination of warm days and cool nights gives a longer growing season, and lovely aromatic qualities to the wines.

Vineyards
The south facing single vineyard from which fruit for this wine is sourced is located at 360 metres above sea level, with vines between 8 and 27 years old. 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 at 13°C for 20 days. The wine was then aged for four months in stainless steel tank before bottling.

Tasting Notes
Pale with green highlights. Abundant aromas of vibrant grapefruit flowers and hints of honey dominate the nose. The palate shows refreshing acidity, interesting mineral characters, a light hint of ripe fruit and a final burst of zingy lemon to lift the finish. A beautifully balanced wine, with a soft mouthfeel that retains a wonderful lifted, fresh character.
