2014 ColleStefano Verdicchio di Matelica

SKU #1207514

From the importer: "Fabio [Marchioni] makes less than four thousand cases of Verdicchio, which he used to bottle, cork and label by hand in his tiny cantina (now he's sprung for a bottling machine). The romance isn't the point, though; the point is that this wine is racy, vivid, and excellent with all kinds of seafood dishes. It is fermented and matured entirely in stainless steel (no oak) and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Use it like you might use a Sauvignon Blanc, because Verdicchio has some of the same herbal aroma and flavor as Sauvignon. It is a great aperitif, too, with olives and toasted almonds. I drink a lot of this wine."

OK, so I'm a little prejudiced I Love the wines from this region. Matelica is a small valley in the middle of the Apennine mountain range just about an hour’s drive from Ancona in the Marche. A very long growing season always gets this wine physiologically ripe and never loses its focus or becomes overripe. This vintage is just mind-blowing for such a simple wine it is just vibrant, the minerality, richness and tremendous aromatics make this wine a sure winner. You can have this with a range of food from shellfish, to swordfish or even chicken and pasta. I love it and I’m sure you will too.
Drink from 2015 to 2018

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.
