Agricola Tenuta Colpaola Matelica Verdicchio 2021

A crisp and characteristically fresh wine with lively citrus
notes complemented by delicate white floral nuances yet
beautifully rich, creamy, and complex.
Producer Note
Agricola Tenuta Colpaola embodies a passion for Verdicchio, as well as for the land
that makes it unique: Matelica and the Marche region. The Porcarelli family has owned
the Tenuta Colpaola estate in the Braccano Frazione of Matelica since the 1970s. For
many years, the grapes were sold to the local co-operative, but in 2013 the family
bottled its first wines and has not looked back since. The 10 hectares of mainly east-facing vineyard is situated at 650 meters above sea level and is the highest in the
Matelica denomination. It is farmed organically and is fully certified. Only one style of
Verdicchio is produced, and the desire to preserve freshness and authenticity is
highlighted by the decision to bottle with a stelvin closure.
Vineyard
The Marche in Central Italy is where the Verdicchio flourishes as one of Italy’s finest
native white varieties. The name Verdicchio translates as ‘little green one’, due to a
distinctive green tinge on the grapes even when fully ripe. The vineyard is located in the
DOC of Verdicchio di Matelica, which has a north-south orientation running parallel to
the Adriatic Sea. Mountains on either side create a valley, sheltering the vines from any
seaborne ventilation. The Verdicchio vines are Matelicese clones, which were planted
in 2007 at a density of 3,200 vines per hectare. The Guyot-trained vines are organically
cultivated with an east-facing orientation at 650 meters’ elevation on the hills behind
Mount San Vicino, in the hamlet of Braccano. The climate is distinctively continental,
with warm summers and cold winters. The diurnal temperature variation extends the
growing season, producing aromatic wines with naturally high acidity. Harvests take
place in the second half of October. The grapes are certified organic and are
harvested by hand.
Winemaking
Vinified with minimal intervention. The highest quality grapes were selected and gently
pressed. The must underwent cool static decantation and was fermented in stainless
steel temperature-controlled tanks, to offer a pristine expression of the Verdicchio
variety and the cool-climate terroir of Matelica. The wine spent four months in stainless
steel, and two months cellaring prior to release.
Tasting Note
A crisp and characteristically fresh wine with lively citrus notes complemented by
delicate white floral nuances. Marked acidity underpins the fruit, with classic minerality
and a saline note on the long, persistent finish.
