About the Wine
Who said that great wine has to be complicated? If you’re looking for an everlasting summer wine; a fresh, fun, and crispy wine; a good wine that you can pair with your Friday’s comfort food like sushi, or perhaps pizza di Formaggio and your favorite TV show, this Italian white is your go-to!
Verdicchio is one of the two most important white grapes in the Le Marche area, and Castelli di Jesi is one of the oldest, well-known appellations of this charming Italian wine region.
"Verdicchio" means "Little Green One", and this white grape, which dates from the 5th century, is responsible for producing lovely and refreshing wines with crisp acidity and captivating floral and fruity aromas. To learn more about this amazing grape and the wines from it, click here.

“We don't transform the grape into wine, but we accompany it in its making, always taking a step back as not to break the harmony of the place with our intervention, but on the contrary, leave it to express itself freely, at first to the sight of those who cross over these hills, and then to the taste of those who savor it in the glass. " Alessandro Fenino.
Alessandro is a proud winemaker and the director of Pievalta, together with the agronomist Pierluigi Donna and the winemaker Sergio Paolucci, he has achieved extraordinary praiseworthy wines.
