Castijo is dedicated by Roberto and Cristina to their father, who had fallen in love with the soils in which the vineyards that give life to this wine grow. Sandy and clayey, they are located in the Marche hinterland, right in the Classic Verdicchio zone. The grapes are selected directly on the vineyard and harvested by hand in several stages, depending on the degree of ripeness. After temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel, the wine ages for 6 months in steel barrels before bottling.
Its warm and bright color is a deep straw yellow.
On the nose, the vegetal hints of walnut husk and herbs, especially basil, are intense; fruity and floral sensations, on the other hand, bring back apples, yellow plums and lime.
On the palate it is balanced between fresh and warm and leaves the mouthfeel of freshly cut grass and bitter almond, with savory and mineral flavors.
In the kitchen it is a wild card for your fresh fish evenings, with pasta dishes, fried fish and even baked fish.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
