Harvest Date: Hand-harvested in the first half of September
Aging: Stainless steel with at least 6 months of batonnage.
Tasting Notes: Fresh notes of lemon and stone fruit can be found on the nose and palate. The wine has brilliant texture, similar to a Premier Cru Chablis. The combination of fruit, mineral, herbs, acidity and texture display a complexity rarely found in Verdicchio.
Vineyard Notes: Vineyard location: Giovanni Piercingly. South-west exposure at 420 meters above sea level. The soil type is “scheletro di arenarea” rich in clay, sand and lime mixed with calcareous matter.
Production Notes: Fermented in stainless steel with at least 6 months of batonage.
Winemaker Notes: This is the first wine I’ve ever produced and it was born just one month before my son who is represented in the label by the blue little stain at the end of the name.
Food Pairing: We want you to try a bottle of this now, preferably with some simply prepared shellfish, but come back for more. This is a wine you can drink now for its freshness, but it will age for a decade, gaining in complexity.
Other Notes: “Origini,” in only its third vintage has become one of the reference points for Verdicchio in the Marche. In fact, the Italian Wine Guide, Gambero Rosso, has given the 2018 “Origini” its prestigious “Tre Bicchieri” award, one of just 13 Verdicchio from the Marche to receive the award.
