2012 Bisci Verdicchio di Matelica | Top 10 wines in the US press

2012 Bisci Verdicchio di Matelica | Top 10 wines in the US press | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Italian-born Verdicchio grape was another of Bonné’s spring-time wine selections recommending this 2012 vintage from Bisci.

He said: “Of Verdicchio’s two appellations – Castelli di Jesi is the other – Matelica is higher and farther inland from the Adriatic, capable of a more powerful, ripe wine. Still, this is about fresh, seaside flavors: fresh lime, sea salt and sorrel, and shows no end of ripe fruit.”

Price: $20

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.
