Above: “After 25 days, 11,529 crates of grapes, and 600 cups of espresso and meals sitting around the wine press,” wrote Pievalta general manager Silvia Loschi on the winery’s Facebook on October 8, “harvest 2015 is over!”

“The cold, rainy 2014 vintage posed many challenges” for Verdicchio growers write the editors of Slow Wine in a blog post published last week.

“But when it comes to the Superiore category, despite the difficulties of the harvest, there were many worthwhile results.”

Pievalta’s Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Superiore Dominé was one of them.

“The wines have high acidity and deep minerality but they are also very complex.”

The Dominé was one of the wines tasted and cited recently by the editors in a report published on their blog.

And they also named it one of their 2016 guide’s “best everyday wines.”
