The Pallio di san Floriano Biologico Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore is made by winery Monte Schiavo. Monte Schiavo is part of Tenute Piralisi and is located in the Marche or the Marken. A white grape variety from the Marches, Verdicchio bianco is a very old variety, and although it has existed in the Marches for centuries, its birthplace is most likely Veneto, from where it then spread south in the 15th century.
The Pallio is made from 100% Verdicchio on the Guyot system which are grown organically and obtained from a late harvest of Verdicchio grapes from a beautiful vineyard of the estate. The Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico Superiore takes its name from the ancient medieval ceremony still held in the town of Jesi.

Vinification at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. The wine then ages on the fine yeast (sur lie) for about 5 months before being bottled. In the glass crystal clear, straw-colored with green-golden highlights. This delicious wine has intense and powerful aromas of ripe tropical fruit and citrus fruits, and tastes very delicate with notes of sage and almond and also leaves a long-lasting, pleasant aftertaste. Due to its great structure and intensity, it is particularly suitable for roast fish, fried foods and white meats.

When you say Verdicchio, your mind immediately goes to the Marche region. The reason is easy to explain: it is the area's most common autochthonous white grape variety. Its scarce ability to adapt to areas beyond those of Castelli di Jesi and Matelica give it a strong territorial characterization. Morphologically and from a DNA point of view, it is identical to Trebbiano di Lugana and Trebbiano di Soave, grapes that can be found between Lake Garda and the western part of Veneto. Some similarities are Verdello, Verduschia, Peverella (only in the autonomous province of Trento) and Trebbiano Verde (only in Lazio).

Its presence in the area between Ancona and Macerata is long-standing and is attested by various documents, mainly notarial deeds, dating back to the Middle Ages. The origin of the name is quickly explained: even at full maturity, the grapes never lose those shades of green that characterize the bunch. In the vineyard, it seems to have a sterile property in the first two buds, resulting in short prunings.

In addition, it is quite delicate in terms of its resistance to mildew and other diseases and therefore it should be grown on well-exposed and airy hills. It ripens in a regular period, i.e. between September and early October. Its bend gives way to a wide choice of interpretations: it can be harvested in advance to produce spumanti with personality, but also for vintages where the fresh citrus sensations can be captivated, or it can be harvested as soon as it is ripe to reveal wider fruity sensations to obtain. Verdicchio is also suitable for over-ripening, where hints of candied fruit and aromatic herbs are present to create refined white wines from partially dried grapes. It likes fermentation in steel, but also tolerates aging in wooden barrels of different volumes, just as it is suitable for the fermentation of red wines and subsequent aging in earthenware amphorae. This is why it is universally recognized as a complete, versatile variety. Its distribution throughout the territory of the Marche region is a consequence of its nature and it is not rare to find it in the area of ​​​​Ascoli Piceno, where it was one of the elements of the varieties that gave birth to the Falerio dei denomination Colli Ascolani

Vineyard for 2021 Monte Schiavo Pallio di san Floriano Biologico Verdicchio Classico Superiore

Owned since the 1960s by one of the most famous families of entrepreneurs and winemakers in the Marche region, the Pieralisi estate was created with the creation of the Monte Schiavo winery in 1976 in Maiolati Spontini, in the province of Ancona, in the heart of the classic production area of ​​Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. The attachment to the country and the region and the passion for innovation have guided this family's path since Adeodato Pieralisi founded the first workshop for the maintenance of agricultural machinery in 1888.

Forever guided by a deep respect for the land and its natural processes, and by the belief that authenticity at origin is the key to creating a quality product, Pieralisi Estates are now certified as organic farming and are fully compliant with the policy for the production of vegan wines.

Since the foundation of Monte Schiavo about 20 years ago, the Pieralisi family has strived to get the best out of their vineyards. The Tenuta Pieralisi range represents the culmination of their project — leveraging the expertise of winemaker Simone and renowned consultant Carlo Ferrini — to create a top layer of premium wines that confirm the individuality of the indigenous varieties Verdicchio and Montepulciano. Carlo Ferrini has worked as a consultant at some of Italy's finest estates — optimizing cloning, rootstock, vine density and pruning — to create wines that are a true expression of the vineyard. At the same time, Simone has revitalized the cellar and added an extra layer of vibrancy and expression to the wines, making Monte Schiavo a producer of top quality authentic wines.
