FAZI BATTAGLIA MASSACCIO Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2014 and 2016 75cl (13.5%)
Verdicchio from the highest, most south facing vineyards. These conditions allow the grapes to stay in the vineyards longer than the normal harvest process. It thus achieves greater concentration and unique aromatic ripeness. Massaccio spends 5-6 months on lees and is then bottle-aged for at least 8 months.
Intense golden yellow. The noble rots suffuse Massaccio with ripe fruit, particularly golden delicious apples and pears with notes of honey, fruit and nuts, aniseed and Mediterranean herbs.
Rounded and crisp wine with well-balanced notes of bitter almond and pleasant and intriguing hydrocarbon notes.
Decanter’s platinum score 97 in 2018.
