    Verdicchio di Matelica 2017, “Terre di Val Bona”, Cantine Belisario, Marche, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    IW16

    The Cantine Belisario co-operative was founded in 1971 and today, it is the biggest producer of Verdicchio in the Matelica DOC, a smaller zone than Castello di Jesi. The climate here is more continental than in Castelli di Jesi and the combination of warm days and cool nights gives a longer growing season, and lovely aromatic qualities to the wines.


    The Terre di Valbona is a blend of grapes selected from some of the best vineyards included in the co-op. The vineyards are situated on a south-facing hillside 350-450 metres above sea level. The vines are between 9-24 years old.


    Fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at temperatures of between 15-17ºC for a period of 20 days. After fermentation the wine was aged in stainless steel vats of 300 hectolitre capacity for two months. The Terre di Valbona is unoaked to maximise freshness.


    A pale lemon wine with a lovely aromatic and clean bouquet showing perfumes of acacia and a touch of honey. Surprisingly full-bodied but with a lovely balance between a crisp green apple character and rich, honey and lemon. The finish is dry and vibrant.
