The flagship Verdicchio itself, as sure of a bet in jaw dropping value as one will encounter anywhere in the world. It’s that time, so get it while the gettin’ is good!!! He says that the ’21 is, once again, well harmonized between fruit and acidity, natural alcohol at 12.5% (vs 13% for the 2020), and is plain delicious…..he says that it seems like they pull a sample every night to try, even though they know it well now; it just tastes so good and is gone so quickly that they keep on “sampling”……He is going to bottle some Magnums for us as well….!!!! This is one to load up on every year, as it just seems to NEVER be out of place, always useful, delicious, and guilt free $…..
“Pale straw-green. Knockout aromas of quince, pear, white peach and white flowers are complicated by lemony minerality on the vibrant, captivating nose. Rich and broad on entry, then explosive in the middle palate, saturating the mouth with bright, lively floral and fresh citrus flavors that are intensified by penetrating acidity. Finishes extremely long and creamy-rich, expanding to coat the palate and teeth with lingering white peach and floral flavors. The bright acidity conveys an almost weightless mouthfeel to this seamless, rich, extremely concentrated wine. You can tell that owner Fabio Marchionni studied white wine in Germany. This is but one of many outstanding vintages for this wine. Let me be clear: I think it is probably Italy’s single greatest white wine buy.” 94 Ian D’Agata for the 2012, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE.
