Brunori Azienda Vitivinicola
Carlo and Cristina Brunori
APPELLATION: Castelli Di Jesi
The company is situated in the San Nicolò quarter of the community of San Paolo di Jesi (AN), at an altitude of 200 metres above sea level. This community is located in the middle of the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi zone, an area that is particularly suitable for grape production.
Mario Brunori founded the company in 1956, and his son Giorgio was soon working alongside him, while the enterprise is now led by Mario's grandchildren, Carlo and Cristina, who have inherited not only the extensive experience in tending the vines, but also a deep interest in the knowing and applying modern technology. Carlo and Cristina are both sommeliers and knew how to mould tradition and experimentation and existing cultivation techniques with modern wine-making equipment, in an incessant search for excellence.
Over the years the Brunori estate has grown and been modernised without abandoning its family characteristics. Personal attention to the production cycle has been maintained, from vineyard care to vinification, from working in the cellar to bottling and eventual commercialisation.
To the east of central Italy lies Marche, an area bordered by the Adriatic Sea at the east and Apennine Mountains at the west. The Apennines separate March from Umbria, while Abruzzo and Emilia-Romagna sandwich it at the south and north, respectively.
The terroir of the area is varied, with viniculture occurring in cool and warm zones within the region. The distinct topography of the area comprises a variety of soil components, including limestone and clay.
A dry white wine called Verdicchio, which has decidedly improved throughout the years of its production in the region, is the most famous wine made in the area. This citrusy white wine has two DOCs: Verdicchio di Matelica and Verdiccio dei Castelli di Jesi.
