A weighty wine of great finesse. The deep straw yellow colour shows golden hints and the nose comes up fresh and penetrating with light overtones of ripe fruit, honey, bitter almonds and aromatic herbs; balsamic and a hallmark note of aniseed left by the vineyard of origin. The palate follows through nicely, with a fresh attack and pleasant softness, balanced by the rich, velvety alcohol. The long, lingering finish calls to mind apples, plums and almonds. A long, sapid and salty finish.
Plenio Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva DOCG Classico
Plenio is our Verdicchio Riserva, a class recognised by the production rulebook, which prescribes a minimum ageing period of 18 months of which at least six must be in bottle. The name of the wine, from the Latin Plenum, is intended to suggest the characteristics of fullness, complexity and structure. It is a wine to be appreciated for its lingering persistence and for its richness of perfumes and aromas, which combine with the elegance of great whites to make it a unique wine. The first few years were produced from a plot in the Villa Bianchi vineyard, but now Plenio is the product of vines grown at higher altitude, in one of the areas historically regarded as more suitable for the production of Verdicchio, near the picturesque village of Cupramontana.
