UK | Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2013 Monte Schiavo | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Monte Schiavo are a large cooperative group. The fruit is sourced from over 35 growers, and the quality is usually superb. Verdicchio is the signature wine from the Marche region on the Adriatic coast, and is one of the prime examples of a fresh, summery Italian white.

An invigorating wine with great diversity of fruit, including lemon, pineapple and lime along with ripe apricot notes. The finish has an interesting bitter almond streak.

This is the quintessential Italian white wine. Perfect as a party wine or for outdoor drinking (preferably in the sun).

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers and gourmets from the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, a first DOCG of the Region, to the Pecorino or Passerina, rediscovered wines that recently hit the headlines. Also the Rosso Conero and Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG wines, two great reds native to the vineyards of just seven municipalities in the Le Marche province of Ancona. The Le Marche where all these wines are found have mountains and hills gently sloping down to the coast, a great terroir, essential for the growth of great wines. In 2012, Le Marche produced 920,000 hl (10.2 million cases) of wine. There are 16 DOC and 5 DOCG wines, these spread throughout the Marche region, thus confirming the high level of quality reached by this wonderful regions wine production. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
