ColleStefano Verdicchio di Matelica 2010

 

1034862x

A gorgeous Verdicchio that brings together minerality, fleshy fruit, nuts and honey. A quartet that really works.

Quite profound minerality of slate or black stones – evident both on the nose and palate. The fruit composure is mostly that of peach and nectarine, and there is a definite honey almond nougat note. Finishes with a curious wheaty taste, which I like.

I wouldn’t say it has a notable textural element (especially when compared to many other Italian whites), but it doesn’t have to when its other attributes are so admirable. If you want an Italian white that offers more to think about than the average Pinot Grigio, this is where you should be looking.

Very Good / 91 points
