Sensory profile: this is our most distinctive version of Verdicchio di Matelica. It needs a bit of time for its characteristics to mature and thus to reveal itself as a wine of exuberant aromatic richness, yielding notes of anise, citron, and dried fruit. Powerful and full-bodied on the palate, it maintains its remarkable concentration on through a very lengthy finish.

The minerally edge to the finish reflects its terroir and makes it a good complement to elaborate recipes with fish; its firm structure will go very well with fresh cheeses and light meats.
