Technical Data Sheet
CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeWhite DOC wine
  • Location Marche
  • Grapes Verdicchio 100%
  • Sensations Yellow colour tending towards golden. A mineral, savoury, acidulous, long, full-bodied wine. The good fresh glyceric balance on entry is dragged by the sapid vortex towards a long finish loaded with consistent mineral and varietal returns.
  • Vinification Verdicchio grapes, harvested as soon as ripe to preserve the must's high acid content and traditional white vinification. The wine is then over-ripened in the cellar, in ancient vitrified cement tanks; it is only time that works to create the maximum possible "tertiarisation" of the sensory profile.

    "Meridia" Verdicchio di Matelica DOC 2021
  • Today we find ourselves in the heart of the Alta Valle Esina, where the legend of Verdicchio di Matelica DOC Meridia by Cantine Belisario is born. It originates from the Balzani vineyards in Matelica, where the loose, hilly, sun-kissed soils at an altitude of 360 metres offer an ideal habitat for the Verdicchio, a Verdicchio clone from Matelica with a tight cluster. The continental climate, with its temperature ranges, creates an unmistakable microclimate that favours a good accumulation of aromas in the grapes, preserving their fine acidity. The grapes, harvested at the right degree of ripeness, are pressed and undergo cold static decantation. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature, in 300 hectolitre stainless steel tanks. The real peculiarity of Meridia, however, lies in its ageing, which takes place for 15 months in vitrified cement casks without racking. This unconventional choice allows the wine to develop a unique aromatic complexity, enhancing its mineral and savoury characteristics without ever distorting its essence. The result is a white wine distinguished by its yellow colour tending to gold. On the nose, intense mineral aromas intertwine with notes of white-fleshed fruit and white flowers. In the mouth, it conquers with its minerality, savouriness and vibrant acidity that make it a wine of great structure and persistence. An important wine, it is designed for those who love complex, multifaceted whites. A wine that must be "listened to", sipped calmly and carefully, to grasp all its nuances and be enraptured by its elegance and depth.

    We are located in the heart of the Upper Esina Valley, where the climate is pleasantly Mediterranean, thanks to gentle, constant mountain breezes and generous sunshine that kisses the vineyards for several months of the year. This is where Cantine Belisario, founded in 1971, is located. Today, the winery can count on no less than 300 hectares of vineyards, all located just a few minutes from the cellar, guaranteeing impeccable control of the grapes and consequently careful vinification. It is no coincidence that Cantine Belisario is one of the largest producers of Verdicchio di Matelica DOC, a white wine that represents the very soul of the territory. Each bottle encapsulates the passion and dedication of generations of winemakers, respect for tradition and constant innovation.
