Fattoria CoroncinoAll products from this vendor
Lucio Canestrari & his wife founded Fattoria Coroncino in 1981 and have been pioneering quality Verdicchio ever since. Their three vineyards comprising 9.5 ha of their total 17.5ha all lie within 3km of the winery, producing 50,000 bottles per year from their own grapes. All wines are Classico Superiore, from the heart of the traditional zone and the lowest yields. They farm organically, grassing the vineyards since 1983, integrating insects and vine health since 1992 and no fertilizers since 1995. “We are proud to say that we are not part of any winecentric association; we don’t believe in any dogmas and we pride ourselves in our use of common sense, in harmony with nature”. They are one of the saviours of Verdicchio, rescuing this region’s wines from a downward spiral of overproduction and a lack of attention that saw its qualities squandered. The Marche DOC of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi is centred on the town of Jesi, Province of Ancona and takes its name from the ancient fortifications of medieval times. Brushed with cooling breezes up and down the river valleys, onshore to begin with and offshore later in the day, this is ideal white wine territory.
VerdicchioAll products from this varietal
Verdicchio is universal white wine grape variety used both for crispy light wines with fresh fruttiness and vivid acidity, and for more structural and complex wines with almond, marzipan and honey flavors and good cellaring potential.
The region is located in the centre of Italy - in the mountainous and hilly areas cradled by the Adriatic Sea. The region is best known for its white wine Verdicchio - these wines win top awards form the popular wine guide Gambero Rosso every year. The wine is often filled in amphora type bottles to honour the memory of the historic Greek presence on the coast of Marche.
