Greape: 100% Verdicchio
Region: Italy> Marche> Castelli di Jesi Classico
Notes: Stainless steel
Description: The Colonnara Cooperative was established in 1959 with 19 farmers. Currently there is over 100 commited wine growers practicing sustainable farming. The perfect micro-climate found on the hills of the Marche region makes this an idea site to produce high character Verdicchio.
The terroir in this area is of marine deposits with elevated levels of clay and sand. This composition lends itself to the strong marine-based mineral flavor in the wine. Refreshing, super clean character with a medium-bodied feel. Subtle notes of bitter almond and acacia. Great food wine that will pair with pretty much anything because of its clean nature.
Food pairings: Boiled shellfish, seafood, veggies, pan-fried fish, mature cheese, eggs and omelettes, etc.
