Pievalta Verdicchio Superiore
Tired of oaky whites? Looking for something other than Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc? Look no further than this stylish organic and biodynamic Verdicchio from the east coast of central Italy. Striking citrus fruits with the attractive nutty flavours for which this grape is rightly famous. Steely dry this wine will sing with simply grilled fish.

93/100 - Decanter Magazine, 'Pievalta's entry-level Verdicchio comes from a warmer, more Adriatic-influenced site than its San Paolo single-vineyard expression. This makes for a richer, more exotic but still savoury and intense wine. Biodynamic. Drink 2017-2020.' Monty Waldin, Decanter February 2017 (2015 vintage)
16.5/20 - JancisRobinson.com, 'Stony white fruit with a hint of mandarin. Linear lemon palate and then ends on a fine leesy note. Mid length.' Walter Speller, August 2016 (2015 vintage)
The Pizzini family arrived in Franciacorta in the 1870s. Since then, the estates have passed through many generations of the same family, until in the 1990s a group of local wine entrepreneurs, bought the estate and started to invest in the business putting people, and the environment first. Organic techniques followed and soon they expanded their horizons by investing and buying new properties in the Maremma Toscana area and in the Marche, Castelli di Jesi. With a full range of wines from three important wine regions of Italy, Barone Pizzini are a dynamic, quality driven group whose wines are enjoying increasing recognition. We are very pleased to be working with more of their wines in the UK this year.
