La Distesa Terre Silvate Marche bianco, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Verdicchio
REGION: Cupramontana, Marche
GOOD TO KNOW: Corrado Dottori’s family has tended vines in San Michele near the town of Cupramontana in the Marche for three generations. The rolling hills at around 320 metres above sea level, constant sunshine, firm clay-limestone soils and that all important fluctuation between temperatures day and night found here provide the perfect conditions for the growing of the Verdicchio grape. We did he last harvest together in Sicily, an amazing experience.
TASTE: rich and extracted. Ripe-sweet apple on the attack gives way to citrus and a load of minerals with a definite saline streak.
