Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, December 27, 2013 3:39 PM

The story started when Robert’s and Peter’s parents, Cesare and Rosa Mondavi, originally from Italy’s Marche, moved from Minnesota to Lodi soon after Prohibition started in 1919. They came to organise the buying and shipping of fresh grapes for Italian-Americans – and others – who wanted to take advantage of a provision in the law allowing families to make a limited quantity of wine each year for their own consumption.

Le Salse Verdicchio di Matelica DOC

Le Salse Verdicchio di Matelica DOC | Wine News and Information | Scoop.it

This Verdicchio di Matelica is made of grapes grown on vineyards that have a Jurassic period raised sea bed, near salt water springs called "le salse" (from "sale" which means salt). The raised and unique North-South mountain valley blocks off tempering coastal winds to cause extreme diurnal temperature differences resulting in this racy, mineral driven wine.  Notes of tangerine and green apple.  $15.99
