Terra Libera "Insieme" Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2022



From a single vineyard swathe of 5.5 hectares in the San Paterniano area of Serra de’ Conti with west/south/south-west exposition at an average of 300 m above sea level. Despite being a unified vineyard, it represents a unique “togetherness” (insieme, in Italian) of different soils, altitudes, and expositions. Soils range from more calcareous-clay at the top of the vineyard, to loamy at the midpoint, to sandy at the bottom. Hand harvested, destemmed and softly pressed, then clarification of the must through decantation followed by spontaneous fermentation using pied de cuve from the same vineyard. The wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel for six months followed by two months’ aging bottle before release.

This wine is bright with zippy acidity and begs to be drank with food and friends
