Place: Marche, ITA
Massimo Palmieri and his family left Milan for a quieter life in the rolling foothills of Marche. Obsessed with the qvevri-raised wines of Georgia, Massimo only uses stainless steel and Georgian qvevri to ferment and age the wines that come from his biodynamically- farmed vineyard. Everything is done by hand from vineyard to cellar and only a tiny amount of sulphur is added at bottling.
This is classic Marche verdicchio. Unmistakably sun-kissed and sea-sprayed, it combines citrus freshness and stone fruit texture to be a truly delicious summer white. Best enjoyed with shellfish linguine!
