Plenio is our Verdicchio Riserva, a class recognised by the production rulebook, which prescribes aminimum ageing period of 18 months of which at least six must be in bottle. The name of the wine,from the Latin Plenum, is intended to suggest the characteristics of fullness, complexity andstructure. It is a wine to be appreciated for its lingering persistence and for its richness of perfumesand aromas, which combine with the elegance of great whites to make it a unique wine. The firstfew years were produced from a plot in the Villa Bianchi vineyard, but now Plenio is the product ofvines grown at higher altitude, in one of the areas historically regarded as more suitable for theproduction of Verdicchio, near the picturesque village of Cupramontana.
