Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi, Pontemagno, Cupramontana, Italy 2017
Grape variety, 100% Verdicchio unoaked.
An elegant and well-balanced dry white, with a bright golden colour and inviting floral aroma. There's plenty of ripe fruit flavour here, especially peaches, juicy apples and pears, and a fresh, dry finish.
Verdicchio is a popular and versatile classic Italian white wine, made in the Marche region of the country. This fine, especially ripe and fruity example has been made from 100% Verdicchio grapes, grown in a warm area between the Marche Apennines and the Adriatic Sea. This wine is unoaked and was produced by the wine making team at the modern Santa Barbara winery.
Serve lightly chilled. This is delicious enjoyed on its own or match it with fresh white fish, simple chicken dishes or leafy salads. It also goes well with pasta in creamy sauces.
Wine of the week for Jancis Robinson (FT) and Victoria Moore (Saturday Telegraph). Great Value.
