    • IL PRIORE: A NATURAL LEADER

      Rich with peachy apricot, zesty citrus and a salty twist

      Il Priore has been a powerhouse of a wine since 1996, and we are thrilled to announce its recent recognition with the prestigious 2024 Slow Wine Top Wine award, along with the esteemed Tre Bicchieri Award in 2023. A natural leader amongst Verdicchio wines.

      This vino is as legendary as its namesake, the mighty monk who ruled the monastery. Crafted from a special “cru” parcel in the vineyard just behind an old monastery, Il Priore (the Prior) offers a sensory explosion! With its radiant straw-yellow colour and golden-green tones, Il Priore boasts a robust body that'll blow you away. Take a whiff, and you'll be greeted by the irresistible scents of peaches, apricots, and delicate acacia flowers.

      But it's the taste that steals the show. Il Priore's beautifully structured profile glides across your palate, leaving a cool and refreshing impact. With hints of citrus, almond and a touch of saltiness, this wine is pure magic.

    From the Winemaker

    Il Priore, our flagship wine, is a heartfelt tribute to our father Settimio and the Camaldolesi monks who shaped our winemaking journey. Inspired by our father's vision, Il Priore is crafted exclusively from 100% verdicchio grapes, a nod to the community and the leading monk, Il Priore, who resided in the ancient monastery just below our vineyard.

    With their vital role in vine cultivation and their unwavering dedication, the monks passed down to us the traditions of meticulous winemaking. Through the hand selection of the finest verdicchio grapes, gentle pressing, must cleaning, and vinification in steel tanks, we carefully nurture the wine's character. The result is a wine that undergoes a prolonged aging of six months on lees, revealing an unmistakable fullness that embodies the true essence of the verdicchio grape.

    Over time, Il Priore has become our cherished "workhorse" wine, gaining recognition and praise from guides and wine lovers alike. We love it because it beautifully represents the unique typicity and terroir of the verdicchio of Cupramontana. 

    Food Pairing

    FISH, FISH, FISH, oh and FISH.

    Drink it with white fish such as grilled halibut, seabass, Dover sole or turbot in beurre blanc or citrus, herby dressing.

    A steaming bowl of spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams) would be a fabulous dinner date dish.

    For local dishes, we highly recommend steaming platters of lobster, crab and prawns, or scallops with soy, ginger, vermicelli and spring onions.

    This wine also has the body and acidity to pair with medium-strength or smoked cheeses such as taleggio and smoked mozzarella.
