Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva Classico D.O.C.G.
The most shining gem, an aged Reserve which fully defines our work.
Golden highlights blend with the typical straw yellow colour of Verdicchio in the glass wine, along with the intensity of spicy and floral aromas.
The perfect choice for the name was a nickname of our family, whose origins are as unknown as significant.
During the planting of the first vineyards, Dario used to fondly call his son Giovanni “ciocò”, when he was a child who ran and played among the rows.
This is exactly how Ciocò was born and just like a child, with time and constant care, it matures.
