The Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi d.o.c. Classico is an elegant wine produced on a single vineyard (4 hectares) in the historucal region of Jesi, Castelplanio (Ancona). The coastal area near Jesi is perfectly suited to wine production, with its pebbly fossils in the terrain soil and maritime climate. In fact, this zone within the Esino River valley is considered one of the premier wine producing areas in Italy today.
