PIERSANTI - VERDICCHIO DEI CASTELLI DI JESI DOC CLASSICO
The company was founded in 1955 with Giovanni Piersanti and his two sons Carlo and Silveria in a basement where with passion and dedication they bottled sparkling wine (which at that time was the most popular product) of two types: white and red.
In the eighties, with the inclusion in the company of his sons Giuliano and Ottavio, carefully following the latest developments in the wine market, the company focused on the production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi which in a short time will become the workhorse.
The new production requires higher quantities and a more accurate specialization, for this reason the company moves its production site to a plant of 2000 square meters, where with method, and continuous updating, it is able to better serve more markets. As fifty years ago, the Casa Vinicola Piersanti controlled and directed by a family management that over the years has been able to demonstrate competence and reliability assisted by a company philosophy based on quality-price ratio.
This is a classic Italian white, crisp and fresh, with flavours of apple, white peach and citrus heightened by a fine refreshing streak of flinty minerality.
