This is a wonderful organic Verdicchio from the territory of Apiro in the Macerata Province of Le Marche in central Italy, without a shadow of doubt the jewel of the region.
The wine is a pale straw yellow with golden highlights and a luminescent tint of green. A complex aroma of exotic fruits and cedar, elder broom, lemon flowers, wild fennel and thyme, finishing with a flinty minerality. To taste it is intense and savoury, fresh, warm and persistent.
What the critics say:
‘Bright with white pepper spice on the nose while the palate has the softness of baked lemon fruit in the middle, although it tightens up on the finish with some crisp pear characters‘. 87 – The Wine Gang
