2009 Laila Lailum Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi Classico Riserva
"Made from 100% Verdicchio. After a careful thinning out in vineyard follows a soft grapes pressing previously cooled. During a fermentation of 15 days at Fattoria Laila wineries on its cask, must is preserved at a low temperature in special thermo barrels. The fermentation ended, wine is put on barrique and everyday moved to keep the lees suspended. The color is bright straw yellow with greenish reflections. The nose is delicate, with a slight fragrance of wild flowers. On the palate it is dry and smoothly with a slightly bitter aftertaste (This wine can be considered as one of the highest quality white wines). Food pairing suggestions include aperitifs, starters and fish." - Winery
"Fattoria Laila in Corinaldo lies in the rolling hills of the Marche, overlooking the Adriatic Sea on the east coast of Italy. Verdicchio and Montepulciano, indigenous varieties in our 'Il Libretto' project, are cultivated here under the guidance of Lorenzo Landi, enologist, who has helped to establish strict limits in the vineyard in order to craft excellent wines. Today, Laila is the leading vineyard project in all of the Marches, with densities that reach 8,000 plants per hectare, based on viticultural research not practiced anywhere else in this region."
"In 1990, Andrea Crocenzi took over the Fattoria Laila preserving many of the traditional methods of farming, but introducing new technology into the cellar and improved vineyard plantings to bring a centuries old estate up to date. His wines reflect the characteristics of his own charismatic and hard working personality: Elegance and Exuberance. An important momentum has been added with the arrival of Lorenzo Landi, winemaker with great experience, who has helped Andrea Croscenzi focus on a style unique to this winery." - Importer
