Monte Schiavo, Verdicchio Dei Castelli di Jesi Classico DOC, 2019, Marche, Italy


This is a really lovely white wine from an estate that historically produced olive oil. One of our favourite's in the range purely on the basis we rarely find something as good as this for the price. A great Verdicchio example. Fresh, juicy, packed with flavour but still light, and elegant. A great food wine, and so versatile. 

The 350ha Monte Schiavo estate in Marche is a testament to the Pieralisi family whose background was in olive oil manufacturing equipment, but 20 years ago began to invest in agriculture, also purchasing vineyards from the co-operative within Maiolati Spontini. The estate now consists of around 100ha of vineyard, 50 ha olive groves, and other agricultural crops. 

Monte Schiavo is one of the first companies in Italy to be registered on the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). As of the 2019 vintage, Monte Schiavo is fully certified organic, and all the wines will be labelled accordingly. They have a very strong sustainability focus, and even use a large portion of self-generated solar power to run the winery.
