Accadia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2015Marche, ItalyPouring a shining gold hue, this organically grown verdicchio was grown on fairly steep slopes and around 400m in sandy, calcareous clay soils. This dry white includes some late-harvest picked berries which may lend to the botrytis kisses this wine receives. After several passes through the vineyard, this is vinified and aged in stainless steel where it remains for six months. Heady fresh quince, yellow apple, apricot blossom along a medium+ bodied, concentrated and lightly waxen palate, imbued with earthy / herbal meadow notes typical of Marche. The structure and concentration is nimbly balanced out by a spier of acidity, and padded with ample alcohol (14.5 degrees), leaving you with an impression of freshness even within all the weight. A lovely, stately version of the style, and one well suited to equally impressive pairings (or a rest in your cellar).Tasted: 22 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 32.00 private order Producer: Società Agricola AccadiaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
