Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva DOCG Classico
Type of wine: Dry white
In three phases: early, normal and slightly late.
Crisio comes out of different stages and moments. This quality division into phases allows, with patience and anticipation, to create a harmonious and unique wine, which goes back to its origins thanks to a process of separation for a perfect result. It is a great “Verdicchio Riserva”, very long-lived, which can be uncorked even after eight to ten year of life.
Crisio is produced in the vineyards of Serra de’ Conti area, next to CasalFarneto Wine Estate, on a soil of medium consistency tending to sandy with southwest exposure. A peculiar feature is that harvesting occurs in three different moments in the same year. Fermentation of the first harvest is in small barrels and the following two in steel tanks. Refinement phase lasts over one year in steel tanks, and for at least one more year in bottle.
Colour: Straw yellow with greenish reflections.
Perfume: A sturdy aromatic note of freshness and persistent smell of citrus, white flowers, white fruit and aromatic herbs.
Flavour: Full-bodied, complex, elegant, fresh, mineral, very flavoursome with a pleasant acidic hint and a persistent aftertaste of almond, typical of Verdicchio wines.
It pairs beautifully with any seafood main dish, like shellfish or sushi, but it’s also perfect with first courses garnished with aromatic herbs, mushrooms, truffles or semi-mature cheeses.
