The food at Vetri in Philadelphia is simply breathtaking. I had the great fortune to dine there last night with my great friend and client Paolo Cantele
There were many extraordinary wines poured last night but the one I can’t stop thinking about was the Bonci 1998 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, selected by my friend Steve Wildy, the restaurant’s wine director.
This fifteen-year-old expression of Verdicchio seems to be drinking at its peak (and perhaps has more years ahead of it): rich and complex, it was such a great example of an indigenous Italian grape (one of the few) that benefits from small-cask aging.

Awarded Wines of Le Marche: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore San Michele 2009 – Bonci | Wines and People | Scoop.it

This Verdicchio del Castelli di Jesi Doc Classic Superior is a wine that has been prized with "5 grappoli" by the AIS Guide "Duemilavini" ed. 2012.
San Michele is a white wine, obtained from the wine-making of gapes of a vineyard located in ‘St. Michele‘ area. The good Southern Exposure and 400 mt. above the sea level create a particularty appropriate micro-cimate for the prodiction of quality grapes. A special element of this area is the considerable thermal contrast between day and night in the last phase of gape ripening, by guaranteeing in this way a stability of aromatic precursors. The moderate yield per hectare, the implantation age, the
clonal varieties of Verdcchio create the ideal condtions for the production of this ‘cru".
Alcohol Content: 14% vol.
Colour: briliant, straw-yellow, gold dotted.
Bouquet: floral with light aromatic sensations of anise, acacia, peach, hazelnut and citrus fruits.
Taste: soft, delicate and greatly structured with an almondy aftertaste.
Serving Temperature: 14°C.
Gastronomy: ideal for fish, but it can also match white meats.
Preservation: it is at its best after one year of bottling. but it can be preserved even for several years.
