- Fontezoppa Verdicchio Di Metalica 2013 Product #29252 (In Stock)
This 100% Verdicchio grown in the chalk and limestone soils of Italy's Marche region is a fantastic Pinot Grigio alternative! Bursting with bright citrus, apricot and tropical fruit aromas and flavors over tingly acidity and a fine mineral streak. Plenty of flavor here, but at just 13% abv, not a touch of heaviness. Great seafood, salad, or veggie pasta wine and a fine value, too.
Wine Enthusiast's review for the 91 point 2012 seems spot on for this new release, too: "This beautiful wine opens with a heady floral fragrance of jasmine, broom, acacia and beeswax. The palate delivers succulent creamy peach and pineapple notes, with a hint of bitter almond. The creamy palate is brightened by mouthwatering acidity and, while delicious now, this will develop additional complexity."
