The Verdicchio grapes in this gorgeous white are carefully harvested during the coolest hours of the day – in the last 10 days of September – and pressed within two hours, to preserve their unique and gorgeous aroma. Best enjoyed with a plate of heavenly seafood, it’s also a great match with red or white and grilled meat.
Meet The Producer
Based inland from Ancona, Federico Mencaroni is a fourth-generation winemaker who was taught everything he knows by his dear uncle, Nevio Mencaroni, who overcame a wealth of rising pressures from globalisation to preserve this small but beautifully formed vineyard in one of Italy’s most undiscovered wine regions.
Cantina Mencaroni – at just six hectares – is small by modern standards. But, when you consider the entire Le Marche region has only 20,000 hectares of vineyards, six will do nicely thanks!
