The vineyard Croce del Moro at Rosor in the Ancona province have their wine fields laying at around 400 meters above sea level, about 5 ha, with a soil mixed between sand and clay, all very ventilated and warmed up from the nearby Adriatic Sea.
I have tried Croce del Moros Verdicchio Classico Superiore with the name Crocetta. It has a beautiful yellow colour, combined with some discrete green shades, and all very brilliant and shiny. The nose is very intense and complex, with lot's of white flowers, pepper mint, eucalyptus, herbs and spices, lemon and lime, at the end also some yellow flowers, pineapple and acacia-honey. On the palette it's dry, warm, intense, persistent, fresh with very good acidity, salty, loads of minerals, a beautiful viscous rounded body, balance and harmony everywhere! The flavours on the palette is pretty much the same as those in the nose, very coherent.
This Crocetta from Croce del Moro is marvellous with both seafood and fish, perhaps slightly more in favour of fish. Try some shrimps fried in garlic and onions, mix it then with cous-cous, and you will have a great lunch.
