SELECTION

AMBROSIA

Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva Classico DOCG

Verdicchio 100%

In ancient Greek mythology, Ambrosia was the drink of the gods, often depicted as giving longevity or immortality to those who consumed it.

Today “Ambrosia” is our product of excellence, obtained from a rigorous selection of Verdicchio grapes from our oldest vineyard, planted in 1975 by our Grandfather Amato, at 230 meters above sea level. in San Paolo di Jesi, in Contrada Battinebbia, in the heart of the Classic area of Castelli di Jesi, where our company is located.

After aging for 24 months in vitrified concrete tanks, the wine refines for a further 12 months in the bottle before being placed on the market.

It is a wine to be appreciated for its persistence and for its richness of perfumes and aromas typical of Verdicchio which, combined with its elegance, make it a unique wine.
