Ribona Colli Maceratesi DOC, Piceno DOC
The Maceratino Ribona
Also known as Verdicchio Marino, it's probably part of the ancient Greek group of grapes (the “Greeks”), imported in Italy by the first settlers in Magna Graecia. Today less there are only 100 hectares left, so a really rare grape.
It is a crisp full-flavoured wine - pineapple, mango and white peach - with a good balance of acidity and minerality.
