Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi Via Condotto, 2016
Taste Profile Where it's from
Verdicchio is a famous Italian white grape that is recovering from a poor reputation in the seventies. Growing in the Marche region, Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi lies close to the Adriatic Sea, on chalk, clay and limestone soils which give the wine a softness, as well as intense lime flavours with a floral edge. This example has been aged on its lees to give added weight on the palate. - Andy Howard
About the Wine
Verdicchio is one of Italy’s classic white grapes and is found in the regions of Marche, Lazio and Umbria. It is in the Marche where it is usually at its best, particularly in the two DOC wines of Verdicchio di Matelica and Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi.
Verdicchio is normally characterised by crisp, citrus flavours with a hint of bitter zest. As the wine ages, nutty characters will also evolve. This variety does have the ability to age well as it has powerful acidity, but most bottles are consumed whilst the wine is young and vibrant.
Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi must have a minimum of 85% Verdicchio in the blend, but the winemaker can also use some Trebbiano and Malvasia if they wish
Goes well with
Crisp, fresh and hints of citrus fruits make this a lovely aperitif wine, but also one that will go beautifully with white meat dishes, chicken and all seafood. It will also be a good match with fresh goats cheese salad, and roasted vegetables.
