The history of the Angelini family in the wine world began in its original region, Marche. In the ‘50s, Francesco Angelini, grandfather of the current owner, played a fundamental role in Verdicchio’s success as one of the first Italian white wines on the international markets. Over the years, the family, deeply tied to its origins, has maintained important estates enriched by dozens of vineyard hectares planted with Verdicchio.
Today, a significant overhaul and reinvestment of the Estate has begun, by the launching the Verdicchio Classico Superiore dei Castelli di Jesi Collepaglia, and the planned building of a modern wine cellar.
The name Collepaglia refers to the hill Colle di Paglia, situated near the town of Cingoli, in the heart of Marche. Colle Paglia has a southern exposure, and gently slopes to the Musone river. The area ranges from Monte Conero, overlooking the sea, to Monte San Vicino, to the “azure” Monti Sibillini.
The Collepaglia vineyards, characterized by unique soil and microclimate, are particularly well suited to produce the best Verdicchio.
