This 300 hectare co-operative is situated in Matelica, which is a smaller zone than Castelli di Jesi. The co-operative has 24 organically cultivated vineyards located inland from Castelli di Jesi, where the climate is more continental, where they source grapes for their organic ‘Vigneti B’ Verdicchio. Here, the combination of warm days and cool nights allows the aromatic qualities of the grapes to develop and extends the growing season, so that harvest takes place as late as the second half of October.
The Rosso Conero, made solely from Montepulciano, is full and ripe, while the Lacrima di Morro d’Alba has a lovely floral character. Both are as impressive as the white wines from this fine producer.
