Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Bright, mineral suffused notes of brittle citrus, green apples and the most attractive, delicate white flowers characterise the Petrara cuvee. On the palate, this is bright and engaging with a dancing, salty acidity and fresh, reverberating finish. A delicious entry-level white that delivers huge amounts of pleasure and character from the get-go. Produced from vineyards averaging 30 years old, aged in stainless steel tanks on the lees for 6 months. Petrara is named after an ancient area of the city of Matelica and comes from primarily south facing clay-limestone vineyards.

Notes
The 2021 Verdicchio di Matelica Petrara is coy and understated in the glass, with dusty yellow flowers and nuances of chamomile. It washes across the palate, balancing soft textures with ripe mineral-tinged pit fruits, as inner florals form toward the close. This turns savory and seriously salty through the long and mouthwatering finale, as hints of candied lime linger. More time in bottle should help to further unlock the bouquet of the Petrara, which will be worth waiting for, especially considering the fireworks on the palate.
