What sets us apart is the attention given to enhancing the Verdicchio grape, utilising modern technologies whilst respecting tradition, to convey sensory complexity through different wine-making styles. We closely oversee the entire production process, from the vineyard to the bottle, so as to guarantee the best expression of the Verdicchio di Matelica.
Our vineyards are conducted in accordance with sustainable agriculture. Thanks to the constant liasoning between the agronomist and our growers, we are able to reduce the number of operations in the vineyard to obtain healthy and quality grapes. All of our vineyards are vegetated, as we consider the maintaining of high biodiversity an important element in the preservation of our beloved territory. In the cellar, our work consists in keeping the composition and aromatic heritage of the grapes unaltered, so as to give the wines the capacity to communicate our passion for Verdicchio.
…the fruit of a complexity deriving from the happy combination of infinite details, primarily:
- the characteristic of the Matelica area, a narrow stretch of land between two mountains, with the composition of its terrain varying greatly from sandy and clay-filled for the medium-height hill to the skeletal limestone typical of the taller hill;
- the continental-like microclimate, with cold winters and hot summers, characterised by an elevated temperature range between day and night;
- adaptation over the centuries of the Verdicchio grape and the fortunate intuition of winemakers who appreciate its great and strong personality;
- sensory descriptives that take us back to the yellow acacia flowers, broom, honey and almond, passing to the fruits of yellow peach and apple, through to the spicy aromas of the reserves that elaborate tertiary complexes throughout the two or three years of maturing and ageing.
- the great heterogeneity of the planted area (with the average surface area for each member being 0.5 ha) which becomes an advantage, since it allows the obtainment of a wide range of reference points and to differentiate the productions.
- sustainable management of the vineyards (some having organic agriculture): vegetation, use of pheromone traps, green manure, limited use of pesticides
