Casal di Serre, Vecchie Vigne, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Doc Classico Superiore, Umani Ronchi

Casal di Serra was one of the first truly "selected" Verdicchio made in this variety’s production area. It was created in the 1980s by selecting the best grapes grown in the Montecarotto vineyard, and later enriched with grapes from another three plots situated in the most suitable areas for cultivating Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. All the values of a great indigenous variety find expression in this wine. Contact with its own natural yeasts during fermentation and in the ageing process gives Casal di Serra particular properties of richness and personality, without altering its fine balance and special elegance. 

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Casal di Serre, Vecchie Vigne, Umani Ronchi

Straw yellow color with golden hints, to the nose it shows intense and persistent perfumes of wild flowers and aromas of yellow pulp fruit such as peach, apricot and golden apple. To the palate it’s rich and velvety with a good dose of freshness and sapidity to balance the great softness. Dry finish, persistent and intensely fruity.

Le Marche Wine in Ireland: Rosso Bello, Rosso Piceno DOC 2010, Le Caniette

Le Marche Wine in Ireland: Rosso Bello, Rosso Piceno DOC 2010, Le Caniette | Wines and People | Scoop.it

This wine is well named as it is simply gorgeous. As usual from Piceno this is a Montepulciano/Sangiovese blend, jam-packed with delicious red and black fruits, lingering cherry and blackberry and touches of violets. The name references one of Michaelangelo’s famous colours
