VERDICCHIO DEI CASTELLI DI JESI CLASSICO SUPERIORE 'STEFANO ANTONUCCI' SANTA BARBARA 2021 DESCRIPTION

"Stefano Antonucci" is the label signed by the protagonist of the Santa Barbara winery. It expresses an absolutely personal interpretation of Verdicchio and a forward-thinking perspective on the potential that the grape embodies. The idea of combining wood and varietal is realized through innovative winemaking for the territory in question, born between chance and a bet, much like all experiences outside the norm. Passionate about wine, even before being a producer and owner, Stefano focuses on the preservation and development of local grapes through creations with a broader international scope.

"Stefano Antonucci" is a pure Verdicchio made by the Santa Barbara winery in the heart of the Castelli di Jesi territory, in the classic subzone that constitutes the central part of the denomination. The medium-loam clay soils extend in a water-rich area, enclosed between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines to the west, above the gentle slopes that reach 250 meters above sea level and benefit from an east and southeast exposure. The vines, aged between 25 and 40 years, are hand-picked, and the grapes, once they arrive in the cellar, are pressed directly and delicately. Alcoholic fermentation begins in steel tanks, under constant temperature control. After racking, the white wine is transferred to French oak barriques, where it can continue to age on fine lees for a period of 12 months. Once bottled, it rests for a further 6 months in the cellar before being released to the world.

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore "Stefano Antonucci" made by Santa Barbara presents an intense golden yellow color with vivid reflections. The nose, intense and sunny, releases a flood of fruity scents that directly evoke the ripening of yellow flesh and the exotic pleasures of tropical juices, with refreshing hints of citrus peels and sweet spices. The palate is consistent with the fruit notes, and the sip is wide and powerful, centered on a smooth softness that finds great balance in an explosive minerality. Definitely worth trying with a dish of spaghetti with sea urchins.
