Coroncino - Verdicchio 'Gaiospino' 2019 750ml
2019 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico Superiore 750ml
Valerio Canestrari's vineyards have been farmed with minimal intervention since 1993. He doesn't allow any machinery in the vineyards, uses solely wild yeasts in the winery, zero additives, and only a tiny amount of SO2 at bottling. Gaiospino is Coroncino's most awarded wine and is produced from a selection of fully ripe grapes from the Spesia vineyard (Cupramontana). 20-30% of Gaiospino is fermented in 500L (used) oak barrels and remains on its lees in the barrels until bottling, approximately 16-18 months later.
This wine has a strong structure and a rich aromatic presence. As is the case with most Verdicchio wines, it gets better with age.
- Can be enjoyed 10+ years from vintage
- Verdicchio is a full-frame, full-bodied wine that some say is the "white wine for red wine drinkers"
