Castijo 2010 - Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi Classico D.o.c.
CASALETA - Serra de’ Conti (AN)

Straw yellow with green highlights, it is crystal clear and consistent. To the nose it is fine, intense, long and complex, opening on the fruited notes of peach, apricot and lots of citrus and followed by the floral notes of acacia and broom and ending on a nice mineral note, typical of the production zone. The taste is full, very fresh and sapid, but also characterized by a lovely softness and a good alcohol content; on the palate it is intense and persistent, with good body and nicely balanced. The family-run winery is situated at 300 meters above sea level, approximately 35km inland from the coast. The estate’s vineyards are planted on the hills near Arcevia, where the soil is a mixture of clay and sand and of an average calcareous quality, the perfect terroir to enhance the organoleptic features of the original Verdicchio grapevine. - www.casaleta.it
