Atavico, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico Superiore, Moncaro
Sparkling straw-yellow in colour, flecked with green and gold. Compelling on the nose with aromas of stone-fruit, wild herbs, blackberry and acacia blossoms, and light hints of broom. Impressive intensity. Lean and dry yet rounded, delicate and smooth. Its crisp acidity and fresh fruit, complemented by the wine’s ageing on the lees, contribute substantially it's great balance as well as its significant body and weight.
