Lupa is excited to present the wines of Col di Corte from Jesi, Le Marche. Verdicchio has had a long history in the Le Marche region. Dating back to the 14th century, Verdicchio has built a reputation as a versatile grape varietal, making some of the best-aged whites Italy has to offer.
Col di Corti is located on the northern shore of the river Esino. The terroir here is ideal for the production of mineral-tinged dry white wines, thanks mostly to its calcareous, clay and limestone-rich soils and a relatively dry maritime climate. The temperate climate here is due to Jesi's proximity to the Adriatic, and to the gentle winds from the Esino that offer the vineyards ventilation. Giacomo's philosophy is that of the craftsman, as he believes the industrial world has shown us its limitations. He is currently adopting Biodynamic practices.
While a focus on Verdicchio, we will also enjoy an appearance by Col di Corti’s, Lacrima di Morro. An aromatic, unique, nothing comparable to it, dry red. The grape is indigenous to Le Marche and surely more obscure than Verdicchio. You've probably tasted nothing like it!
Giacomo will explore 5 of his wines and take us on a journey of his vineyards, passion and life. Chef James Kelley has created a menu to highlight these amazing wines and show how Giacomo's passion has translated into the glass.
