Staff Pick Notes

The Verdicchio grape is a must-know for any budding Italian wine enthusiast and for any person who values whites that deliver way beyond their typical price point.

And if you happen to forget about a stash in your cellar then all the better as they can age wonderfully. When choosing a bottle on the shelf look for either Matelica or Jesi. Matelica produces more elegant and mineral style and Jesi produces the fleshy and riper style. It's no surprise this grape has received flattering praise from critics and somms.
