Virgin Wines : Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio 2011

Virgin Wines : Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio 2011 | Wines and People |

In the heart of Italy's Marche region, Monte Schiavo are creating wonderfully innovative and flavoursome whites. This is a stylish and concentrated Verdicchio with fresh, intense aromas of grapefruit and lime, as well as honeyed stone-fruit. The palate is fresh and fruity; very approachable, with apple, pear and ripe stone fruit. A mouth-filling minerality adds to the complexity and weight. Try this with oysters, or langoustines. Deft enough to be a great aperitif too, if your're without a shucker.

Monte Schiavo is a modern and dynamic company with vineyards in the Marche region of Italy - the heart of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi country. Producing both red and white wines, it's their signature Verdicchios that they are best known by - with four special single-estate Verdicchio wines.
