Alcohol : 13,5%
Grape(s) : Verdicchio
Localisation : Colline di Tavignano, Marche, Italy
Tasting Notes: Spicy and full of unbridled energy, the 2019 Verdicchio dei Castello di Jesi Classico Superiore Misco wafts up with an inviting display of crushed green apples, candied ginger, incense, stone dust and almond paste. It’s a silky and medium-bodied effort that soothes all that it touches in ripe orchard fruits, but it then cleanses the palate with a blast of salty acids. Peppery florals and hints of lime linger, as the mouth waters for more. While the Misco is already firing on all cylinders, it wouldn’t hurt to lose a few bottles in the cellar for a year or two.
Food pairings: It goes perfectly with great seafood dishes, medium-aged cheeses, and white meats
"Misco" is the ancient name of the Musone, the river towards which our vineyards descend: the "Vigneti di Tavignano". But it is also the "Selection" of musts (flower must), the product in which the Company pays the greatest care both in the harvesting phase, with the sorting of the grapes and the manual collection in boxes, and in the mashing phase with the soft pressing of the whole grapes. This particular attention, which is addressed to the grapes both in the harvesting phase and in the processing, has the aim of obtaining products with particular finesse, typicality and long duration.
