Poggio Montali and the Esino Bianco Doc in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The production area of the Esino Bianco white wine is most of the province of Ancona and a large area of Macerata.

A very slight straw colour with greenish reflections.

A characteristic intense nose and a fresh dry taste very similar to verdicchio given that a minimum of 50% verdicchio grape is used in it's production. The rest is made up of white grapes of the production zone authorised by the D.O.C. authorities - normally Trebbiano and/or Malvasia. Minimum alcohol content 10.5%. A sparkling (frizzante) version is also produced, minimum alcohol content 9.5%.
Served at a temperature between 9° and 12°, accompanies most 1st courses, white meats and due to it's lower alcohol grading does not overpower the most delicate fish dishes, molluscs and crustaceans.
