Another from Moore Brothers from their recent 10% off sale. This was medium bodied and lemony.
The 6 hectares of the San Nicolò vineyard are located in the heart of the Verdicchio D.O.C., 200 meters above sea level. The varietal has been vinified in this area since the 15th century. Having produced excellent Verdicchio for three generations, the Brunori family has achieved a perfect balance of tradition in the vineyard (no chemicals, hand-harvesting, respect of the sandy soils) and innovation in the cellar (soft-pressing and microfiltering). The result is a wine of structure and fleshiness, with beautiful aromatics and a lovely, nutty finish. This is also a wine for aging - 5 to 8 years - taking on more complex layers of aromas and textures.
