Certified Vegan. Verdicchio’s long tradition as the Marche’s banner grape and its reputation as one of Italy’s greatest Italian white varieties is highly respected by the stewards of viti- and viniculture at Pievalta. Verdicchio production here is centered in the place-name appellation Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi in the Ancona province of the Marche region. Pievalta’s young history was made possible by the vision of Silvano Brescianini (winemaker and Managing Partner of Barone Pizzini) who tapped enologist Alessandro Fenino to manage this ambitious project in 2002.
Pievalta’s Verdicchio Classico Superiore is sourced from nine vineyards on the left bank of the Esino River. The alchemical symbol on the label means spring and indicates the freshness of the wine. Since 2008, all Pievalta wines have been certified Biodynamic by Demeter. Verdicchio is sourced from vineyards in the zone of Maiolati Spontini (Chiesa del Pozzo, Fosso del Lupo, Costa del Togno, Veranda, San Paolo Vecchie Vigne, Orfeo, San Paolo Bosco, Pieve).
