The La Monacesca estate is located in a beautiful spot in the Appenine Mountain Range. The combination cooling mountain breezes and warm summers are perfect for crafting high quality white wines. Their excellent terroir is frequently recognised with critical appraise.
Mirum from La Monacesca is a Riserva level Verdicchio which means the winery has to adhear to strict ageing requirements. Only grapes with intense aromas and great concentration are used in making Mirum, which is why the vines are 30 years old on average! The extreme ripeness of the grapes results in aromas of toasted almonds, acavia honey, lemon verbena and tinned fruit. The palate is rich and expansive but beautifully balanced. Try pairng with young cheeses or even veal tartare.
