Castelli di Jesi is considered the more famous of the Marche’s two Verdicchio producing regions. The Castelli di Jesi zone is located in north-central Marche. Influenced by the cool breezes from the Adriadic sea, and the area is very rich in clay and skeletal deposits. This wine’s aromatic profile is dominant in white flowers, minerality, and almond skin. It is oh-so juicy in the mouth, with flavours of ripe apple, pear and a mineral finish. The estate is located in the Classico zone which is historical for the production of Verdicchio. The Andrea Felici winery is located in the hilly area between Apiro and Cupramontana. The territory of Apiro is at the foot of the Mount San Vicino, at an altitude of 516 m above sea level. The Felici family have been considered one of the most important producers for the region, with Leopardo Felici having a great hand in the production of the Verdicchio variety. They proudly farm using organic methods and have been sustainably for generations. This wine is made using a blend of young and older vineyards and is both concentrated with flavour. It will hold in a cellar a long while too. Pair with a variety of dishes including seafood, salads, light pasta, poultry and medium strength cheeses.
