Cantine Provima is one the oldest wineries in the fast rising Matelica region of the Marche, having produced wines since 1932. This is a small, high-quality co-operative consisting of 180 vinegrowers across 120 hectares of vineyards.
Only one-tenth the size of the famous Jesi appellation, Matelica is located inland and benefits of a unique north-south exposure. Vineyards can be found in the valley where the surrounding mountains counter any sea breezes. Vines benefit from a clay-limestone soil which contributes more body to the wines than commonly found in Jesi.
The grapes are handpicked then gently pressed. A cold soak on skins precedes a temperature-controlled fermentation in concrete vats. This is followed by 12 months ageing with regular batonnage. The wine is then released after 6 months in bottle.
