Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Hand-picked Verdicchio grapes. Intense straw yellow with tinges of green, luminous. To the nose denotes freshness accompanied by a pleasant suggestion of peach, broom flowers, jasmine and pistachio. In the mouth great balance with floreal and fruity notes that blend with minerality, providing a fresh and tantalising wine with a long and engaging finish. Good accompaniment for spaghetti with seafood or oven roast rabbit. Serve at 10 °C.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Wine Advocate wrote of the 2011 vintage: "The 2011 Verdicchio di Matelica is a clean, crisp white laced with green apples, citrus and flowers, all of which flow through nicely to the clean, vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
