  • Tasting Note: A top-tier Verdicchio made only in really good years, fresh and citrussy, perfumed with liquorice and with a fine, vibrant minerality keeping things elegant.
  • Food Matching: Frito Misto, seafood risotto or mussels with spaghetti will elevate when paired with this wine.
  • Vineyard: The San Sisto vineyard is 350 metres above sea level, on a total of 30 hectares of north-east facing vineyards with clean clayey soils. Every year the best grapes alone are selected to make this single vineyard wine. In colder areas and clayey soils, in fact, Verdicchio is a great grape variety producing full bodied, mineral wines which age well in wood and at length.
  • Vinification: The greatest attention is paid to detail in the wine cellars. San Sisto ferments in small oak barrels, in which it remains for 10-12 months ageing. At least 12 months ageing in the bottle follows.
