Verdicchio di Matelica 'Petrara' 2012, Borgo Paglianetto, Marche, Italy
This wine is from one of the top producers in Matelica and this wine won a Bronze medal in last year`s Decanter World Wine Awards. Another Verdicchio in the range `Jera` won the Italian white wine trophy and yet another, `Vertis`, won the 3 glasses award in the Italian wine Bible `Gambero Rosso`. This is the wine equivalent of 3 Michelin stars.
Wines have been made at the estate since the 16th century and the region first grew vines in Roman times.
This is made from the free-run juice from the grapes used to make Terra Vignata
