Collestefano Verdicchio di Matelica 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The little town of Matelica is in the Marche region, just east of Umbria. This region produces fine, minerally wine from the Verdicchio grape. This wine is racy, vivid, and excellent with all kinds of seafood dishes. It is fermented and matured entirely in stainless steel (no oak) and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Use it like you might use a Sauvignon Blanc, because Verdicchio has some of the same herbal aroma and flavor as Sauvignon. It is a great aperitif, too, with olives and toasted almonds. Not reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 94 points by International Wine Cellar: ...probably Italy's single greatest white wine buy.

Elegantly balanced wine with notes of honey and pear, floral aromas, a hint of elderberry, and a touch of lychee in the finish
