Pure Verdicchio made by the Santa Barbara winery in the heart of the Castelli di Jesi area, in that classic sub-area which forms the central part of the denomination. The medium-textured clayey soils extend in a belt rich in water, enclosed between the Adriatic to the east and the Apennines to the west, above the gentle slopes that reach an altitude of 250 meters above sea level and take advantage of an exposure towards east and southeast. The vines, aged between 25 and 40 years, are harvested by hand and the grapes, once they reach the cellar, are pressed directly and delicately. The alcoholic fermentation begins in steel vats, under constant temperature control. After racking, the white is decanted into French oak barriques, where it can continue its refinement on the fine lees for a period of 12 months. Once bottled, it rests for a further 6 months in the cellar, before going out to know the world.
