Verdicchio grown at 400masl in the district of San Michele, Marche. The vines are carefully managed to respect the natural cycles in which they occupy. Cover crops are cycled throughout the vineyard to reduce evaporation, build carbon and nitrogen. The wine is aged on lees for 8 months creating a textural white displaying almond meal, cut straw and nashy pear.
From the Producer: 100% from Verdicchio grapes. Fermentation in large wooden barrels where it matures "sur lie" for 8 months. Aging for 12 months in the bottle.
Once the bottom of the Adriatic Sea, the hills here were formed more than 5 million years ago. Full sun exposures and calcareous soils with a predominance of clays, marls and gypsum characterize the district of San Michele, 400 meters above sea level. Our grapes are generally harvested early, in September.
We prune using the guyot method, extract and tie by hand. We do not top. Grass cutting is mechanical, we use green manure of leguminous beans, peas, vetch, sainfoin and alfalfa. We make biodynamic treatments with cornoletame. Against powdery mildew and downy mildew we use mine sulfur (not derived from petroleum) and Bordeaux mixture. We use rainwater collected from the roofs and produce electricity with photovoltaic panels. We faithfully respect the lunar cycle in all processes.
