When we use to talk about Ancona and its Province, it comes immediately up to our mind identifying with them one of the most famous products: the “Verdicchio”. It is a vine exclusively cultivated in Marche Region, with white berry and suitable for the production of fresh wines with a remarkable longevity; it can be used also for as classic as Charmat method sparkling white wines.The name Verdicchio comes for sure from its greenish coloured grape, also after its maturation.
It seems that its origins go even back to the XVI century. The Verdicchio had a great characterization thanks to the architect Maiocchi.In fact, over ’50 years period the architect drew an amphor shaped bottle in order to enhance the wine quality and the sinuosity of Marche Region landscape morphology
The colour of Verdicchio is straw-yellow, and, accordingly to its maturation, it can vary on shades that go from greenish to golden. The alcoholic gradation goes from 11.5° to 12.5°C. It is important to store it at about 10°/12° C; when you serve it as aperitif, please keep the bottle at 8°/10° C.
