Grape varieties: Verdicchio
San Lorenzo is a white wine from the Marches with a deep, round and evolved profile produced only in the best vintages based on Verdicchio grapes that is aged in steel and cement for 140 months. Under the luminous golden mantle, it reveals a layered and complex olfactory profile of caramel, honey, dried fruit, balsamic and ethereal hints. The sip is enveloping, dense and rich, with great body and persistence. Artisanal wine, made as it once was.
This is a wine with a typically artisanal face, which expresses the most direct and direct character of a great white grape variety such as Verdicchio. It is a label of particular prestige and personality, which is produced only in the best vintages, when the quality of the grapes makes it possible to produce excellent wines, with considerable aging potential and with interesting aromatic evolutions. It is in fact marketed only after an aging of over 10 years, which allows Verdicchio to fully express its potential, giving aromas of extraordinary charm, ranging from fruit, to honeyed softness to refined balsamic hints.
Bianco San Lorenzo is a wine from the Marches made outside the usual schemes and dedicated to lovers of great, long-lived and complex whites. It was born from the desire to highlight the unique evolutionary characteristics of the great grape from the Marches, too often served young but capable of giving wines of great longevity. It is a label deliberately far from the mainstream taste of fast, easy and simple consumption, which bases its expressive essence precisely on the slow passage of time as an indispensable value to reach the highest peaks of excellence. Grapes of extraordinary quality and a vinification with minimal intervention allow Verdicchio to enhance all its excellent capacity for aromatic evolution.
It is one of the most interesting long-aged Italian whites. The grapes are fermented in steel tanks, in an absolutely spontaneous way, with indigenous yeasts and without any temperature control. Before being bottled, the wine ages for a period of about 11 years in concrete and steel tanks. In the glass it has a bright and intense golden yellow color. The olfactory profile offers particularly complex and rich aromas, with notes of officinal herbs, aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean scrub, ripe yellow fruit, dried fruit, resin and balsamic hints. On the palate it has a good structure, soft and enveloping, with a very deep sip, which stretches vertically towards a savory finish with balsamic and honeyed echoes.
