2010 Marchetti Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi "Cavaliere" (Previously $15.99)

SKU #1071179

When the weather heats up, it's so refreshing to have on hand a couple bottles of dry, very dry, almost bitter and minerally white wine. No region does this style better than the Marche. This is very fresh, straw green/yellow in color and pure as the driven snow. Almost like driving in snow, it's that invigorating! Fantastic with seafood and fish, particularly cold frutti di mare salads.

I think that I said the word "fleshy" twice in my review of this wine, referring to both the aromas and the flavors. So we've established that there is some flesh here. Ripe citrus and stone fruit aromas lead to a tasty palate with some nectarine flavors. A tasty wine to enjoy before dinner or with seafood.

Damn, this is lovely and I wish I'd bought more. New Years res is to drink more Italian white as they are usually so unique and expressive. Love the creamy weight, almond/peach/citrus/stone aromatics-palate balanced by enough acidity and subtle bitter finish to make it food friendly. 91

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.
