Cantine Provima is one the oldest wineries in the fast rising Matelica region of the Marche, having produced wines since 1932. This is a small, high-quality co-operative consisting of 180 vinegrowers across 120 hectares of vineyards.
Only one-tenth the size of the famous Jesi appellation, Matelica is located inland and benefits of a unique north-south exposure. Vineyards can be found in the valley where the surrounding mountains counter any sea breezes. Vines benefit from a clay-limestone soil which contributes more body to the wines than commonly found in Jesi.
The grapes are Handpicked before being gently pressed. Following fermentation at controlled temperatures with selected yeasts, the wine is then aged for 4 months in stainless steel vats and 2 months in bottle before being released.
Grape: 100% Verdicchio
Tasting Note: This delicate yet textured dry floral white wine displays aromas of grapefruit, almond accia and fennel.
Food Match: Ideal as an aperitif or with light fish and salad dishes.
