This high-elevation Verdicchio, described by renowned Italian wine critic Ian d’Agata as “possibly Italy’s greatest white wine buy”, is so pure and lively it almost levitates on the palate — it’s easy to see how this distinctive white has become something of a cult wine. This light-bodied offering is bone dry, undergoes no malolactic conversion, and conveys captivating aromas of ginger and bergamot. The wine explodes on the palate, delivering waves of underripe stone fruit carried by enlivening acidity toward a finish strongly laden with minerality and citrus zest. Wow! Ian was right, this white from the Marche is impossible to beat for the price, especially alongside a crudité platter on a hot day.
