2008 Belisario "Cambrugiano" Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva

SKU #1071052 Wine Spectator

 Aromas of dried pineapple and honey follow through to a full body, with lots of ripe fruit and a long, fruity finish. A lively wine. Drink now. (Web-2010)

K&L Notes

This was the first Verdicchio wine to enter the Riserva designation, back in 1988. It is aged in a combination of steel and oak barrels for one year, with an additional year of bottle age. One taste and it's all there: the hills of Italy's Marche region, the Medditerranean sun, white flowers, a hint of vanilla and pusuasive, savory character on the palate, with absolute harmony between acidity and fruit.

Soft floral notes, fresh mandarin citrus on the palate, I found myself salivating and reaching for more of this Italian Verdiccio immediately. Refreshing, luscious and delicious. This former club wine will be the featured white on my Thanksgiving table!

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.
