Tufico

Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva DOCG

Verdicchio which is grown in a single vineyard in Cupramontana. The low yields, the harvesting by hand very late in the season and the long fermentation mean that Tufico acquires some truly unusual characteristics. This wine owes its name to Luigi Veronelli who suggested giving it a distinctive accent.
