Plenio Verdicchio dei Castelli Riserva 2013
Ripe peaches, apricots, minerals, smoke and honey closely woven in the scent. Beautifully proportioned, intense, creamy, while of nice lightness of taste, in which the wood is perfectly integrated barrel.
Plenio is their 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.
