Nicolas Belfrage MW
Perhaps the most versatile of Italy’s native white grapes is Le Marche’s Verdicchio (vair-DEEK-kyo). This ‘Classico Superiore’, a single-vineyard wine, picked at full ripeness and naturally vinified, is gently aromatic on the nose, featuring wild herbs, temperate-climate fruits (apples, apricots), but with a hint, too, of the sub-tropical (grapefruit). Multi-faceted on the palate, it is subtle and penetrating with a delicious smack of ripe fruit in its heart. Beautifully balanced by crunchy acidity, it boasts a creamy texture which makes it mighty difficult to spit. My advice: Don’t.

Tasting Notes
Open and expressive nose with aromas of apricot, orchard fruit, white flower and citrus. The palate has minerality and texture with ripe tropical notes of pineapple and stone fruit, underpinned by racy acidity and a touch of salinity.

 

Tenute Pieralisi

The orographic and climatic variety typical of Le Marche makes our region particularly lush, something that enables a huge range of animal and vegetable species to thrive. It is our duty to preserve and protect this wealth of biodiversity through non-invasive procedures that work in harmony with the land.

Carlo has spent many years working and consulting in the famed town of Montalcino producing some of Italy's if not the worlds finest wines. Now 
The Maestro is putting his name to a world class wine outside of Montalicino. Rosso Piceno is not often included in the catalogue of great Italian reds, but this 'Marchigiano' special is mounting a serious challenge to enter the lists
