Colavita Verdicchio di Matelica 2014

Colavita Verdicchio di Matelica 750ml 2014     
Sku: 23665

Our Matelica Verdicchio DOC wine is obtained entirely from grapes Verdicchio. The grapes are harvested by hand, it is transported immediately to the cellar where, after a soft pressing, pressed directly with horizontal presses to separate the juice from the skins. The must is lowered in temperature to separate parts fecciose and then sent to ferment controlling the temperature that never exceeds 20 C. All winery operations are aimed at enhancing the best features of the vine through the utmost respect of the grapes. Verdicchio of Matelica is a vine that requires extraordinary attention in the processing because of the sensitivity of their skin, but then gives musts and wines with cloth and enviable body supported by the high acidity and alcoholic richness that allow a remarkable longevity, the latter feature rare for white wines.

Rating
Vinous 88 points - Dark golden yellow. Subded aromas of ripe orchard fruit, mirabelle and minerals. The mineral quality carries through in the mouth, accompanied by fresh flavors of green apple, apricot and peach. More classic, precise and intense on the palate than on the nose. The persistent finish features vibrant, harmonious acidity and an almost atypically ripe quality to the stone fruit and citrus flavors. .Ian D�Agata, July/2015

Wine maker notes
The farm Bisci is the result of the passion of brothers Giuseppe and Pierino Bisci for their territory and their land. In 1972 they bought an estate of about 15 hectares and transformed over the years in one of the reference estates in the production of Verdicchio di Matelica. Today Mauro Bisci, son of Giuseppe, is the owner of the company. The property is situated in Matelica in between the provinces of Macerata and Ancona. It covers an area of ??about 105 hectares, entirely within the territory of Verdicchio di Matelica DOC, 20 hectares of which are under vines. The 20 hectares of vineyards, 14 hectares of which under Verdicchio di Matelica vines and 6 hectares cultivated with red grapes such as Sangiovese and Merlot, are located in mid-hill at an altitude that goes from 300 to 350 meters above sea level, slightly sloping and fully exposed to the south. The cultivation of grapes is linked to the principles of high quality. Vineyards have rows extending in a north-south orientation and are enclosed in a narrow valley of soil rich in trace elements.
