Gambero Rosso - Preview Tre Bicchieri 2014 Marche

Gambero Rosso - Preview Tre Bicchieri 2014 Marche | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Marche: 18 awarded wines and, above all, the Verdicchio that, between the Castelli di Jesi and Matelica, scores a strike, with so many different interpretations and an average level very remarkable.
The extraordinary interpretations of Verdicchio, these grapes so eclectic, have given us, this year, wines with fresh and sharp interpretations more subtle and refined than ever, with sober elegance and intense aroma. The Pecorino confirmed what expressed in 2013 among whites and so the reds with excellent performances, continuity and some new entries. To remark the dessert wines, especially obtained from dried grapes of Lacrima of Morro d' Alba and Verdicchio.
1 of 5 producers were not in the Guide 2013, great sign dynamicity.

Excellent Summer Wine: 2012 Colle Stefano - Verdicchio di Matelica DOC

Excellent Summer Wine: 2012 Colle Stefano - Verdicchio di Matelica DOC | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

The 2012 Colle Stefano Verdicchio di Matelica is an outstanding white wine from the Marche, Italy. Colle Stefano is an organic winery from Central Italy. The winery that is located in Matelica, which is part of the Marche region, has dedicated itself to the production of just one white wine. Their annual production of 80.000 bottles of Verdicchio di Matelica DOC is rather small. I have previously reviewed the 2011 vintage of the Colle Stefano Verdicchio di Matelica. Follow this link to read that review. The Verdicchio from Colle Stefano is a regular winner of the 3 glasses Gambero Rosso award.

Best Hidden Secrets Of The Wine World: Underappreciated Regions

Best Hidden Secrets Of The Wine World: Underappreciated Regions | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

[...] Of course probability of finding very good and reasonably priced wine is getting better and better in today’s world – but you can even further improve it by stepping out of familiar circle and looking for wines from under-appreciated regions.

So what are those under-appreciated regions? As you can imagine, there are lots of them. Again, all the exotic places aside, for each famous wine region, the same countries have tens of “under-appreciated” regions, consistently making good wines for hundreds of years, with majority of those wines being also reasonably priced. In France, great wines are made in Loire, Provence, Jura, Languedoc-Roussillon (we already talked about them) and many other places. In Italy, excellent wines are made in Umbria, Sicily, Lombardy, Marche and again in many other regions. Rias Baixas, Bierzo, Jumilla and La Mancha in Spain; Long Island, Virginia and Texas in United States, South Africa, Israel, Lebanon, Greece, Georgia and Hungary… There is no limit to the places where now we can look for consistently good wines.

As usual, time to open a bottle, right? Let me give you a few examples from the regions which I believe are under-appreciated.

Let’s start in Italy, in the region called Marche, which is located on Adriatic coast of Italy, near Ancona. There are a number of great wines produced in that region, which is still staying off the radar for the most of the wine lovers. Particularly, white wines made out of the grape called Verdicchio, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica are excellent white wines, with balanced acidity and fruit, perfect for summer day. The red wines are made mostly out of Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes. This particular 2006 Casal Farneto Rosso Conero IGT is made of the blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese, and it is an excellent red wine with lots of layers and luscious red and black fruit on the palate (think of blackberries and sour cherries), perfectly balanced.

2007 Bucci Verdicchio Classico Reserva ‘Villa Bucci’

2007 Bucci Verdicchio Classico Reserva ‘Villa Bucci’ | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

2007 Bucci Verdicchio Classico Reserva ‘Villa Bucci’
This is as profound and creamy as any Chardonnay we’ve had in a while. harvested from 60 year old vines on Bucci’s pristine,64 acre property. The wine is fermented underground, naturally and aged in large botte. Very non-interventionist and ‘natural’- like, but clean, round and creamy and beautiful.

2007 Bucci Verdicchio Castello dei Jesi Classico Riserva ‘Villa Bucci’ Marche, Italy $41.99
