Villaia Verdicchio Classico, Tenute Pieralisi (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
The 350ha Monte Schiavo estate in Marche is a testament to the Pieralisi family whose background was in olive oil manufacturing equipment, but 20 years ago began to invest in agriculture, also purchasing vineyards from the co-operative within Maiolati Spontini. They own a portfolio of prime vineyard within the Castelli di Jesi zone, and the Monte Schiavo winery is situated amongst some of their most prized plots, notably the Colle del Sole vineyard. The appointment of talented young winemaker Simone Schiaffino, and collaboration with renowned Italian winemaking consultant Carlo Ferrini since the 2015 vintage, has added a new depth and complexity to their portfolio. Monte Schiavo are in the process of converting to organic production.
Villaia Verdicchio Classico,Tenute Pieralisi is an award-winning, single-vineyard wine picked at full ripeness and naturally vinified. The name Villaia originates from the rural tradition of the Marche region - representing the threshing-floor outside each farm-house, which was also the hub of family and community life. 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. Great with fish dishes, chicken salads and light starters.
