Verdicchio di Matelica DOC

The ancient Verdicchio vine is a symbol of the Marche region. Located in the hills of Matelica, the Accattoli winery was founded in 1958 and is located in the town of Recanati. The production of the Verdicchio di Matelica is only one-tenth of the production of the Verdicchio di Castelli thereby making this a much sought after wine.

Tasting notes: It is characterized by bright, lemony fruit with earthy aspects and a refreshingly crisp acidity.

"It's herbal and intense, with "grassy" and white-fruit aromas and flavors reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. Plenty of fruit on the palate and a hint of stony minerality, with mouth-watering acidity to hold it in shape. Tasted later with food, it was a virtual epiphany with a shrimp dish over pappardelle."
