From David Bowler Wines:
"100% Verdicchio. The fruit is from 10 hectares of various vineyards on the Felici farm, from 10- to 40-year-old vines. The vineyards are between 500 and 600m above sea level; Leo's vineyard site at 600m is the highest in the appellation. Harvest was in late September/early October at yields of 11,000kg/ha (about 60hl/ha). Fermentation is in concrete vats and stainless steel tanks. About half the harvest is macerated a few days on the skins during fermentation. Malolactic fermentation does not take place. Aged on its lees for 6 to 12 months, with six staggered bottlings taking place. "
Certified organic. Sourced from limestone soil.
Dry, complex and amazing with a summer pasta dish or anything seafood. Lemon pith, yellow apple and salty sea air on the nose leads to a zesty and clean palate with good body and fruit supported by racy acidity. A definite must for any fans of Albarino, Loire Chenin Blanc, or Gruner.
