Gli Eremi

2017

Verdicchio from a fifty year old vineyard exposed full south in the heart of the San Michele cru. The area was once a sea and Corrado believes that the shimmering minerality and saltiness you find in wines from here can be attributed to this. The wine is given a direct press and spends a total eighteen months on its lees in old oak casks where it gains wonderful texture and complexity. This was an extremely hot and dry vintage for Corrado and though this is a powerful Gli Eremi, his tireless work in the vineyard means that as always, balance and complexity are the hallmarks here.
