In a Nutshell
Light, fresh and elegant summery white.
Fresh, zesty, citrus aromas with herbal notes and hints of nut and stone fruit. The palate begins with light citrus fruit which extends to hints of white stone fruit and a rounded nutty finish.
Vineyards are situated in the communes of Maiolati Spontini, Montecarotto, Poggio S. Marcello, Rosora at an altitude of 180-360 meters above sea level. The Verdicchio vines are double guyot trained and yield around 11,000 kg per hectare. Vinified in stainless steel, temperature-controlled to retain fresh fruit characters and aromas.
The 350ha Monte Schiavo estate in Marche is a testament to the Pieralisi family whose background was in olive oil manufacturing equipment, but 20 years ago began to invest in agriculture, also purchasing vineyards from the co-operative within Maiolati Spontini. The estate now consists of around 100ha of vineyard, 50 ha olive groves, and other agricultural crops. They own a portfolio of prime vineyard within the Castelli di Jesi zone, and the Monte Schiavo winery is situated amongst some of their most prized plots, notably the Colle del Sole vineyard.
