Castelli di Jesi are a series of 14 walled villages lying on the hills surrounding the Jesi valley. The area, with its many medieval and renaissance towns, is one of the most beautiful places in the Marche and is at the center of the Verdicchio dei Castelli si Jesi Classico DOC area.
Verdicchio is a very old indigenous varietal and is the pride of Marche’s enology, being recognized as one of the most important Italian white wines.
It is extremely versatile and can be processed in various ways to produce fresh young wines to full bodied reserves that can age for years developing a great complexity, or even to produce sparkling and dessert wines.
Verdicchio is not considered an aromatic grape, when young, like most wines of age worthy quality, it is more austere but does have a full bodied flavor with a pleasant almond aftertaste. With the age its bouquet evolves and become more complex, with hints of acacia honey, sage and citrus and many different flavors, varying from place to place and from one producer to another, it is a wine of which one never gets tired.
