- Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013 Product #28073 (In Stock)
Definitely the best vintage yet for this always popular DOC Verdicchio in the traditional curvy bottle. Really bursts with dried lemon, pink grapefruit, Granny Smith apple fruit made even better by a nice dose of stony minerality and a dash of fresh herb. It glides across your palate like silk then finishes brisk and clean and fresh. Great wine for seafood and salads or just to sip. Under-priced for the quality.
- 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."
