Marchetti, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi D.O.C.
(vair-DEE-kee-oh day kah-stay-LEE dee jeh-SEE)

 

Tasting Notes: It could be said that Verdicchio is a thinking person’s Pinot Grigio. Refreshing citrus fruits, playful acidity, and complex minerality are the hallmarks of this varietal, and when well-made, it is one of the best whites in the Mediterranean world. Incredibly, this wine is all free-run juice (no pressing!), and as a Classico, is the best example in its class we have ever tried. Marchetti’s family has been making Verdicchio for generations, and it shows.
