Selvagrossa "Cuchén" Marche Bianco '18

What we adore about Italy is its ability to give us wines that we have never tasted before. Anybody, even a well-versed wine person, is humbled by the staggering amounts of indigenous grape varieties that exist.

Another thing we love about Italy is that the wines mirror the people: authentic, passionate, full of life, to name just a few descriptors.

By now, you know, we adore the Taddei family of Selvagrossa, a winery in the Marche region of Italy. Brothers Alberto and Alessandro Taddei farm just a handful of hectares of vineyard in and around the town of Pesaro. This Adriatic influenced region produces many wines of incredibly personality.

We are so excited to release the new vintage of one of the best value Italian white wines you can buy!

"Cuchén" is a white wine made from the indigenous and rare Albanella grape, which is a speciality of the hills around Pesaro. Alberto is working with a small grower named Carota, who's vineyard is located in Roncaglia, a commune located just Northwest of the city of Pesaro. Made famous by the Pinot Nero from Mancini, Roncaglia has very few vineyards, all of which are highly prized due to their proximity to the Adriatic Sea.

The 2018 "Cuchén" is so beautiful and fresh, the type of wine you can easily finish the bottle of, even on your own. Notes of citrus, herbs, and hint of stone fruit. It finishes long, vibrant and with mineral notes.
