This fresh but complex white wine has an appealing, perfumed nose and would make a versatile match for a variety of fish dishes. It is also a great value natural wine, produced with a light touch in both the vineyard and the winery, hence the quality and character of the grapes shows through, unmasked by the human hand.

Natalino Crognaletti runs this long-established family business and looks after some 35 hectares of vines, both owned and rented, in the communes of Montecarotto, Ostra, Ostra Vetere and Corinaldo.  Vineyards are worked biodynamically and organically, and winemaking is minimal intervention with lots of time on yeast lees for the whites.  The business has been passed down from father to son for several generations. Grandfather, Enrico Crognaletti, besides being an excellent barrel maker and making good Verdicchio, also used to pick the trees and build the barrels that were used to vinify his Verdicchio.   Today his work helps Natalino, his nephew, to understand how and where this wood should be utilized and mainly how to appreciate this experience in the future.
