Verdicchio Classico Superiore Bacareto
Marche is located on the eastern side of the Apennines and is best known for its white wines made from the Verdicchio grape, arguably Italy’s greatest native white grape variety. Of all the DOC classified wine produced in Marche, more than half is the famous Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC, an appellation that refers to the grapes grown on either side of the Esino River west of Jesi.
This is a serious wine that has more complexity than the average Verdicchio. The little bit extra comes from overripe grapes and the time that the wine spent on the lees, which has given a big amount of flavour to the wine.
The vineyards are located in Cupramontana near the town of Jesi.
Age of the vines: 15 years old
Training system: Vertical trellised vines
