Straw yellow, the nose expresses very clear notes of pear and acacia, floral hints that open to an extraordinarily fresh, balanced, very pleasant taste. A good acidity delineates the trait up to a very clean closure.
It is not possible to talk about Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi - the one that can be considered as one of the greatest Italian white wines - without underlining what is the personality of Natalino Crognaletti, true soul of that splendid winegrowing reality in the Marche region that bears the name of “Fattoria San Lorenzo”.
From the cellar of Montecarotto - incidentally the province is that of Ancona - in fact come out season after season, harvest after harvest, wines of extraordinary expressiveness, elegant and relaxed, among the best examples not only of the Marche but of all that is the enological stage of the whole of Central Italy.
A story with distant roots that is handed down from father to son but which knows a real turning point at the end of the last century, in 1995 to be precise, when Natalino takes over the reins of the company immediately imposing himself on the attention of enthusiasts and experts thanks to bottles full of personality, shining examples of that tradition that is so sought after and so much praised today.
The winery can currently count on a vineyard extension of about thirty hectares, where the plants that reach even fifty years of age, give clusters that translate into an annual average of about 80 thousand bottles. White wines that know how to combine finesse and vertical structure, from the simplest Verdicchio “di Gino” to the legendary “Campo delle Oche” Riserva. Structured red wines and at the same time always characterized by a certain freshness and a great drinkability, from the Rosso Piceno “di Gino” to the various “crus” of the company, such as the “Vigna Burello” or the “Vigna Paradiso”. Bottles always derived from a particularly environmentally friendly approach, whereby the vineyards are treated only with copper and sulfur, without synthetic products and without ever resorting to chemical herbicides.
Labels that represent the highest oenological expression of the Marche region, and which are in particular to be placed on the steps of the podium of the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi appellation.
