Average Price: $17I came upon this delicious unoaked Italian white wine a few months back in our local wine store. It is made from the indigenous Italian grape Verdicchio. Since then it has become a regular on our table. While not the cheapest of wines, it offers tremendous value in the under-$20 range.The Taste
Lemony, straw color with restrained yet inviting aromas and flavors of citrus, red apple and apricot with nuances of fresh flowers, honey, pronounced earthy minerality and a wonderful nutty note on the finish. On the palate it is wonderfully crisp and refreshing, juicy mouthfeel. The texture is moderately rich with lots of extract and flavor concentration. Long minerally finish with a delightful spicy kick.At the Table
Because of the fairly rich palate and mouthfeel, this wine pairs well with a wide variety of dishes such as scallops, pan-fried white or oily fish – we enjoyed it with spanish mackeral. It would also be fantastic with a simple herbed roast chicken or veal scaloppine served with creamy mashed potatoes.
