2018 Villa Bucci Riserva Verdicchio Classico dei Castelli di Jesi

SKU #1688826 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Villa Bucci defines the greatness of the Verdicchio grape and the fact that it can age for many years. The 2018 continues this estate's streak of making amazing wine. This wine opens with a subtle note of salt pan, oyster shell and dried lemon zest. As the wine evolves more green apple notes develop. If you love Chablis, this is a wine for you. The palate is textured, layered and complex with minerality at its core and the lemon and apple flavors just standing guard. Drink now–2040. *Cellar Selection* (JP) Inner quote mark (7/2023)

Outer quote mark A beguiling mix of crushed hazelnut, dried apricot, dusty flowers, marzipan and stone dust makes the 2018 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Riserva Villa Bucci almost impossible to pull away from. Its medium-weight textures have an almost-glycerol feel, casting a dense wave of ripe orchard fruits and subtly sweet spices across the palate with ease. The 2018’s minerality comes through in the finale, tapering off slightly grippy yet not as structured as past vintages; a note of sour melon lingers. The Riserva of Bucci typically takes a bit of cellaring to really perform, yet the 2018 is already showing quite well today. That said, losing some bottles in the cellar for a few years certainly won’t hurt. This is a unique vintage for this wine, but one that really shouldn't be missed. (EG) Inner quote mark (7/2022)
