Food Pairings for Belisario Verdicchio di Matelica'Terre di Valbona'
Cantine Belisario is a 300-hectare co-operative founded in 1971. Today, 24 of the vineyards are biodynamic. It is the biggest producer of Verdicchio in the Matelica DOC which although lesser known than the Castelli di Jesi, can be every bit as good. Belisario’s vineyards are situated inland, in the Esina Valley, Matelica, where the climate is more continental. The combination of warm days and cool nights gives a longer growing season, which in turn ensures good flavour in the grapes. Terre di Valbona is a blend of grapes selected from some of the best vineyards included in the co-op. They are situated on a hillside at between 350-450m above sea level and have a southerly exposure. The age of the vines is between 9-24 years old. Harvest took place between the 22nd September and the 1st October. This 100% Verdicchio wine is bright, clean lemon yellow in colour. It is fresh and clean on the nose, with an attractive floral, lemony perfume. On the palate it is zesty, youthful and unoaked, with good length and a mineral quality on the finish.
