Tenuta San Marcello
Verdicchio Castelli Jesi Buca della Marcona 2017
Our Verdicchio from Marche region is sourced from vineyards located in Vallesina at 220 mts above the sea level on a calcareous-clayey soil. Our vineyard management relies on natural micro-organisms and algae in order to strengthen the plants’ defense, plus sulphur and copper when needed. We skip any use of chemicals, pesticides and herbicides. The manual harvest took place in the 1st week of September. We do a short maceration of 48 hours on the skins and then proceed to a soft pressing. Tank fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts and the ageing process continues in steel vats where the wine rests on its fine lees for 7 months. Low levels of sulfur dioxide are added just before bottling. We do not follow any invasive cellar practice and we like to present our wines as an expression of terroir and sense of place. Enjoy this artisanal, unfiltered, hand-made wine displaying freshness and minerality.
