Well aren’t you a peach!
La Distesa’s Terre Silvate is composed of Verdicchio and Trebbiano. Verdicchio is a white Italian grape known for peachy aromas, and the Trebbiano adds just a little bit of salty attitude. The vines were sourced from four plots within the villages of Castelli di Jesi, Cupramontana and San Paolo di Jesi. The wine was fermented with native yeasts in a mixture of stainless steel and concrete, and rested on its lees for a little added texture before bottling.
