2016 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Azienda Santa Barbara

2016 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Azienda Santa Barbara - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Santa Barbara’s Verdicchio has quickly become one of the most popular white wines in our retail shop, and it’s easy to see why. It strikes the right balance of quality and price to deliver a wine with vibrant tropical fruit aromas and a dry, refreshing finish. If you’re looking for a new house white or just something to take to your next picnic, this is the one.

About Marche

Le Marche’s reputation as a producer of fine wine is relatively recent, as the region is very much off the beaten path for tourists and tasters alike. And yet, early Etrsucan and Roman civilizations grew grapes here, a tradition that persists and continues to gain momentum in this undulating land where the Apennines descend to the Adriatic.

In between the warm coastline and the cool, rugged mountainous border with Umbria lies a landscape of calcareous rolling hills that provide ideal conditions for viticulture. The zingy, green-tinged, citrus- and pine-scented Verdicchio is king here, producing delightfully crisp whites that perfectly complement the fresh fish and seafood stews of the Adriatic, in addition to the pork-based dishes that are staples inland. Around the towns of Jesi and Matelica, the grape takes on an additional dimension and is even capable of significant aging under the right conditions.

While our involvement in the region is recent, the two producers we represent demonstrate that Le Marche is capable of producing whites of serious interest, which often come at great value.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
