Cuprese 2001: the best "Fresco di Grotta"
In June the 25th 2011, a technical committee of winemakers, journalists and industry specialists have awarded our Cuprese as the best wine during the initiative called "Fresco di Grotta" (Cave of Cool).
"Fresco di Grotta" is a project that offers the opportunity to combine a visit to Europe's largest underground complex in Genga (Province of Ancona) with the discovery of the Verdicchio wine in its own terroirs.
The fourth edition of "Fresco di Grotta" consisted in a ceremony where the media focused on the recovery, by cavers, of 13 different Verdicchio wines placed two years earlier to rest in a ravine located within the large monumental Cave of the wind. In the caves, the temperature is constant all year around (12-13°C) as well as it is the humidity (95%).
Later, a committee of journalists and wine experts tasted the different wines recovered and expressed a unanimous verdict: Cuprese was the best Verdicchio wine among all the others.
Another confirmation of the longevity of this amazing product.
