Fattoria San Lorenzo Verdicchio Gino
PRODUCER: Fattoria San Lorenzo is a third generation family winery, run by Natalino and his family in Montecaretto, that is completely organic and biodynamic and also include an organic olive grove. The farm is rich in biodiversity, with dozens of farm animals, (some of which lend their names to his wines, such as the Goose). He believes manual farming is the best way to maintain the health of the vines, and his skill as a winemaker is testified by the fact that his wines are so ageworthy - his top Verdicchios age like a bold Chablis.
WINEMAKING: This particular Verdicchio comes from vineyards located to the west of Ancona in the dei Castelli di Jesi region. The area's proximity to the Adriatic Sea is believed to add a touch of saltiness to the wines. This award-winning white makes a great pairing with rich seafood dishes.
TASTING NOTES: Verdicchio Di Gino Fattoria San Lorenzo, biodynamic, nutty, complex, easy and expressive dry white wine. This is the entry level Verdicchio from Fattoria San Lorenzo, named after Natalino's father. It is rich and expressive with notes of fresh orchard fruits, with lovely texture, and nutty complexity. A very approachable, great value natural wine, unmasked by oak.
