La Monacesca

La Monacesca wine

La Monacesca (lit. Monastery), which is situated in the township of Matelica in the Marche region of central Italy, dates back to 900 AD, when a group of Benedictine monks fled persecution to the Apennine hills to practice viticulture. More recently (since the 1960s), father and son Casimiro and Aldo Cifola have been tending Monacesca’s low yielding, late harvest, old vines and their Verdicchios compete with Italy’s finest whites: complex and concentrated, yet elegant and refined mountain whites. Choose between their regular Verdicchio and the Mirum reserva or why not compare and contrast?
