Colonnara Cuprese Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi£13.80 – £82.80
Verdicchio is a white wine grape variety that has been cultivated for hundreds of years in the Marche region of central Italy. It is a versatile variety, used both for light, easy-drinking table wines, and for more complex, ageworthy examples. It is commonly lauded by critics as being one of Italy’s best white wine grape varieties. The grapes are harvested by hand, vinification takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature, bottled during the spring subsequent to the harvest. Refinement and aged in bottles for several years for certain vintages. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with hints of green when young, tending towards golden with age.
On the nose: Initially, intensely fruity, lemon, green apple with a floral background, finally complex with notes of flint stone
On the palate: Good structure and balance with initial notes of freshness, lemon and grapefruit and final notes of pleasantly bitter sapidity (pleasant flavour from mineral salts), almond to finish
Recommended combination with food: Seafood starters with a sauce; boiled fish or shellfish or fish cooked in a sauce, or roasted; pasta or rice with a white fish sauce or shellfish sauce; raw pork, salted meat of any kind; mixed fried meat and vegetables; medium matured cheeses.
