Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2015

Marche, ItalyBitter almonds and oily pine nuts lead this verdicchio, one tinged with earthy grass and dried straw, perhaps reflecting the wild yeast ferment and five months on the lees. Green and yellow apples, pear, thistle, wild flowers and subtle white honey are carried on the medium bodied palate, one freshened by brisk and cleansing acidity. The finish is a touch hot even at 13 percent alcohol - and ready for protein like halibut or seared scallops. Grapes from 8-30 years old on heavy clay loam hillsides 200-350m go into this classic Castelli di Jesi. The clay weight is felt grounding this wine.Tasted: 05 April 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.99 BCLS ON 17.00 QC 19.00 NF 19.00 Producer: Umani RonchiDistributors: Stile Brands
