Verdicchio di Matelica D.O.C.

Our Matelica Verdicchio DOC wine is obtained entirely from Verdicchio grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand in small boxes, then carried immediately to the cellar where, after a soft pressing, the must is moved to concrete vats for fermentation and later refining.
Certified organic (CCPB) starting from vintage 2019.
