2021 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Colleleva
Discount Eligible $16.00
SOLD OUT

From vineyards in the green, gently rolling hills of the Marche cooled by the maritime influence of the Adriatic Sea, this charming Verdicchio has been a customer favorite since our first vintage back in 2015, and not simply because of its affordability. It’s a do-everything white perfectly poised between richness and refreshment, with a pleasing, peachy viscosity countered by a crisp, herbal finish. Light enough to pair with salads, but substantial enough to accompany pan-seared salmon or a simple roast chicken.

About The Region

Le Marche

map of Le 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.

Old cob-webbed wine bottles

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
