2007 Belisario Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva Cambrugiano

SKU #1064045

Ranked among the finest white wines in Italy, Belisario's Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva "Cambrugiano" was the first Riserva ever produced in 1988, now a DOCG as of June 2009. From the best high-elevation vineyards to late harvest, cold fermentation, and partial aging in barrique, this wine epitomizes Matelica's reputation for producing powerful white wines. "Cambrugiano" earned Gambero Rosso's highest "tre bicchiere" rating in 2006 and again this year for 2010 as well as the tre bicchiere "Verde" for environmentally sustainable Green wines. Recommended as one of the great Verdicchios by Cucina Italiana (August 2009). Floral, vanilla, savory, apricot, and herbs with a long, mineral finish. Pairs excellently with white meats, ripe cheeses, strong pasta dishes, and elaborate fish plates.

the terroir of northern italy is in this bottle. we paired it with steelhead trout and asparagus. also bruschetta, heavy on the garlic, not a problem for this white. really nice combination of floral nose and mineral finish. subtle fruit and balanced acidity!
Drink from 2010 to 2013

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
