Capestrano Verdicchio Verdicchio di Matelica 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells of big ripe peach and stinky volcanic soil all covered in a bit of cheese ring. A bit tense and firm in the mouth, this opens with assertive earthy, mineral notes followed by gentle white fruits suspended on a rather angular frame. There's plenty of cut on the palate, with a hint of tannin that drives the medium length, dusty dry and refreshing finish. Not a fruity wine, this is a bit simple and subtle but beautifully built. A really fine food wine. 87 points

The Capestrano Di Matelica is dark straw yellow, with greenish reflections, crystal clear with a good consistency. On the nose this wine has notes of Golden apples and walnuts, juniper and jasmine. Nicely smooth and fresh on the palate, well poised alcoholic content and good body.
