Tasting Note

Massaccio is Cupramontana's historic name, the town the beautiful vineyards for Verdicchio Classico Superiore overlook. This is the richest and most concentrated version of Verdicchio, the outcome of years of experimentation. With intense golden yellow hue. The precious noble rots then pervade Massaccio with ripe fruit, particularly golden delicious apples and pears with notes of honey, fruit and nuts, aniseed and Mediterranean herbs. In the mouth it is rounded and crisp, with well-balanced notes of bitter almond, which are characteristic of the grape variety. With long months of bottle ageing, finally, the wine expresses pleasant, intriguing and complex notes.

Winemaker

From the highest, most south facing vineyards allow special topographical conditions and unique environmental circumstances, with cool nights and dry, sunny days. Grapes can stay in the vineyard longer than the normal harvest period. This involves a mild over-ripening process, characterised by the active intervention of veraison by noble rots. This 100% Verdicchio thus achieves greater concentration and unique aromatic ripeness.

Winemaking

Grapes are carefully destemmed, in order to keep the grapes as intact as possible, and then left to macerate cold in the press (cryomaceration) for a period of at least 10-12 hours. This process extracts all the aromatic properties from the grape’s aroma packed skins. The wine then ferments in concrete tanks at temperatures of 18-20°C. Massaccio then finally spends time on the lees for at least 5-6 months and is then bottle aged for at least 8 months."
