Description

This Verdicchio bears the name of the old "Empório" that was on the property. On the left bank of the Esino river, in the vineyards that are more than 50 years old, this lively and mineral white wine is produced. Its fragrance is characterized by fresh, citric notes, reminiscent of peaches, mangos, limes and yellow flowers with a certain spice of herbs. The palate is also dominated by spicy and salty freshness and liveliness, making it the perfect accompaniment to aperitif riche and fish dishes. A rendezvous between grapefruit, mandarin, carambola and white peach, accompanied by an exciting juiciness and salty touch.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Grape varieties

Verdicchio

The white wine star from the Marches

This very old white grape variety was originally native from northern Italy, in Venice. Her new home are the Marches, where she produces great white wines, mainly dry and sparkling. Verdicchio is very widespread in Italy. They are mainly found under one of the many synonyms such as: Angelica, Lugana, Pevarise, Pfefferer, Terbiana, Turviana, Verdone and many more. It is not related to the Spanish grape variety Verdejo or to the Portuguese Verdelho, even if the names sound similar. Its origin dates back to the Etruscan era, when it also played an important role in the conquest of Rome.

Verdicchio is a grape variety with medium to late ripening, also vulnerable to botrytis (noble rot) and therefore suitable for the production of sweet wines. It translates into fresh white wines with an ageing potential. Hence, through its emphasis on acidity, it also suits for the production of sparkling wines. Typical aromas are citrus fruits, peaches, bitter almonds and apples, combined with a mineral and salty touch.

Today, the cultivated area in Italy is about 3,530 hectares. Verdicchio is also grown in small quantities in Argentina, Brazil and California.
