Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva ‘Senex’, Bisci

100% Verdicchio from the first selection of grapes from the Fogliano vineyard – picked at the moment of the highest possible acidity while maintaining phenolic ripeness. Hand-harvested into small boxes. The wine ferments in glazed concrete tanks under temperature control. The 2010 aged in cement on the lees for 78 months, was bottled March 3rd 2017, and was released for sale in January 2018. So it enjoyed 9 months in bottle before release. Only 600 cases 6pks were produced. The name Senex from Latin—it means old!
