Production Notes

Made from Verdicchio grapes grown in Monte Schiavo's 'Fossato' vineyard in the commune of Poggio S. Marcello. The vineyard is at 205 metres above sea level and the soil is clay. Vines are trained on wires in the cordon spur style. The grapes are hand harvested in October in several passes. Yields are very low - below 50hl per hectare. The hand selected grapes are fermented using local yeasts, at a controlled temperature, in stainless steel. The wine is is matured on the lees for 5 months in stainless steel before being bottled.

Producer Information

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.

Slowly Gennaro Pieralisi and his son Andrea have developed their winemaking capabilities and production. Although initially focused around the Verdicchio grape, over the last 10 years they have also developed a range of red wines from their own estate fruit (with the exception of their Rosso Conero, which is produced in collaboration with Alberto Serenelli).

The success of their manufacturing business has allowed the Pieralisi family to invest heavily in the estate. They use state of the art technology, and as they have grown they have strived to improve quality and reduce yields.

The appointment of talented young winemaker Simone Schiaffino, and collaboration with renowned Italian winemaking consultant Carlo Ferrini since the 2015 vintage, has added a new depth and complexity to their portfolio.

Monte Schiavo are in the process of converting to organic production - 2019 will be the first certified organic vintage across the estate.
