Vignedileo Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2022

16.50

Description

The home grown superstar in Italy’s Marche region, Verdicchio is treated with a reverence and adulation more normally reserved for movie stars here.

From the Palpacelli family vineyards in Staffolo, grapes are harvested at night, gently pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, and bottled young after just a few months.

Straw in colour with green tints, this is fresh, floral and bursting with personality, with notes of lime, anise and floral hawthorn. The clay-based soils of the Staffolo region provide a gorgeous minerality and mouthfeel on the palate, dry and fruity with elegant mineral notes on the finish.

Serve up with grilled fish or as a contrast, light, creamy soft cheeses.

  • Crisp, fruity, refreshing
  • 750ml
  • 13% Alcohol

We love going to places where a grape that's unknown or overlooked elsewhere in the world is treated with a reverence and adulation more akin to international celebrity. So it is with Verdicchio in Staffolo, the home of Vignedileo in Italy's Marche wine region. They've been growing Verdicchio here since Roman times, making the century the Cimarelli and Palpacelli families have been at it seem like they're upstarts.

Brothers Emanuele and Gianfilippo are the new generation of Palpacellis, taking over from their father Leonardo who passed away prematurely in 1999. Vignedileo literally translates as 'Leo's winery'.

As well as the prized white Verdicchio dei Castelli, the family also produces red wines from Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. Sustainability is at the heart of everything they do, from organic fertilisation and technical innovations to reduce CO2 emissions in the vineyard, to careful water management and solar powering the winery.

You just have to try Verdicchio.
