Verdicchio di Matelica DOC

Verdicchio di Matelica DOC
“A territory has always been identified with its own culture and its people’s traditions. In a place of rural, humble and determined origins, past values are transmitted in what is inspired by the characteristics of its land.

A wine that does not need to be announced. A label that enhances the Verdicchio handing down the origins of our history.

There was a time when in the narrow streets of Matelica it was used to address our family with the name “grillino”. A nickname, a habit; customs and habits to recognize someone who liked to walk all around with a chat and a laugh.

The shortened word “Grillí” is a spontaneous dialectal consequence “.
