A maceration of Trebbiano, Malvasia and Verdicchio fermented on skins for two weeks in old barrels and aged for a year in vat. A little more delicate and restrained than previous vintages, it really blossoms with air, impressing with gentle aromas of citrus, herbs and spice, fine tannins and a pronounced mineral note that keeps us coming back for more.

Trebbiano, Malvasia, Verdicchio


Corrado Dottori’s family has tended vines in San Michele near the town of Cupramontana in the Marche for three generations.

The rolling hills at around three hundred metres above sea level, firm clay-limestone soils and that all-important fluctuation between temperatures day and night found here provide the perfect conditions for growing the region’s fascinating local grapes.

Across the seven hectares of vineyards, biodiversity is both championed and cherished, you’ll find fava beans, peas, alfalfa, wild mint and more in between the rows of vines, providing diverse surroundings in which the plants thrive. The focus on attaining pure, characterful fruit through organic viticulture and low yields.

As you would expect from such an earnest grower, the approach in the cantina is honest to say the least and Corrado’s pure, nourishing wines are our favourites in the region and amongst Italy’s very best.
