75cl * 13.5% ABV * Matelica, Italy
Verdicchio di Matelica is grown at far greater altitudes in Italy that its more famous neighbour, Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi. This slightly cooler climate makes the wines lighter and gives them more acidity. The resulting fruit character is so subtle they ferment using yeasts normally reserved for Champagne. This is because these yeasts don’t give the wine any particular fragrance and allow the fruit to speak for itself.
Taurus Team Tasting Note: Wonderful aromas of green apple peel, sharp citrus lemon, hazelnut and bitter almond. Clean and linear on the palate with a refreshing finish. Ideal for an aperitif.
