Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi 2018
The Verdicchio grape, also known as Trebbiano di Soave, has been cultivated in the Marche region for many centuries. It is one of the most ancient and unique grapes cultivated in Italy. Legend has it that Alaric, the first king of the Visigoths, brought barrels of Verdicchio to keep his soldiers strong and fresh as they marched on Rome in roughly 408 AD.

Fascinating notes of white flower, grapefruit pith, dandelion, and fresh cilantro draw in the senses immediately, rounding into flavors of tangerine and tart green apple with bright and thirst-quenching acidity.
Grapes are crushed and soft pressed, fermentation occurs in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 18/20°C.
This classic wine comes from the Accadia estate vineyards on the hills of Jesi, in the Marche region, just 27 miles from the Adriatic Sea. Angelo Accadia, owner and winemaker, is an eclectic artist. The winery is a gallery where Angelo’s wines are surrounded by his paintings and sculptures.
