2018 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore “Capovolto”

La Marca di San Michele

Capovolto is a delightful and refreshing white from Le Marche region of Italy, a relatively less-traveled part of the country that is ideally situated between the green, heavily forested hills of Umbria and the Adriatic Sea. La Marca’s organically tended vineyards grow in the limestone soil of an ancient seabed, benefiting from mountain breezes at their back and cool sea air in their face. This pure Verdicchio has a divine fullness followed by a long, crisp finish, like an Italian version of Mâcon.
     I enjoy it as an aperitivo as I cook, and find that it sings with a classic regional dish such as petrale sole with capers, lemon, and parsley.

About Marche

map of 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.
