Made in the col fondo style, in which the second fermentation occurs in bottle and the wine is not disgorged, the bone-dry NumerOdue showcases even more mouthwatering acidity, making it a versatile and sophisticated sparkling wine for the table: it will accompany dozens of dishes well, from grilled white meats to fish to pizza.
La Marca di San Michele in Cupramontana is run by the sibling team of Alessandro Bonci, Beatrice Bonci, and Daniela Quaresima. They are light years ahead of most of their neighbors in growing their six hectares of Verdicchio vines entirely organically, vinifying with minimal sulfur, and bottling unfiltered. Cupramontana is the birthplace of Verdicchio production in Le Marche–the region’s first vineyards were registered in 1471. La Marca refers to a “border district.” All of these territories were united to form the region of “Le Marche,” the only Italian region that takes the plural. The dynamic young leadership of La Marca is producing wines that will inspire your senses and transport you to this breathtaking land.
