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

Excellent Summer Wine: 2012 Colle Stefano - Verdicchio di Matelica DOC | Wines and People |

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.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Do you know the difference between Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica?

Wines and People
The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers. There are 5 DOCG wines and 16 DOC wines. From the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, to the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, from the Offida Pecorino to the Offida Passerina. Also: Bianchello del Metauro, Colli Maceratesi, Colli Pesaresi, Esino, Falerio dei Colli Ascolani, I Terreni di Sanseverino, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, Rosso Conero, Pergola, Rosso Piceno, San Ginesio Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
