Fattoria La Monacesca:
One of the most famous wineries in the Verdicchio di Matelica DOC producing quality wines year on year with the standard Verdicchio bottling a very fair price at around £8 (2011). The riserva versions have won various awards with Gambero Rosso. With 27 hectares under vine and 170,000 bottles produced per year and many for export finding wines from La Monacesca is easy. Look out especially for the Verdicchio di Matelica Mirum Riserva.

A golden yellow in the glass with distinctive green hues. On the nose this wine gives out a tremendous waft of aromatic beauty with citrus, anise, honeysuckle and green under-ripe walnuts. Striking acidity and a luscious mouth-feel gives this wine a rich, opulent tone with sour citrus notes continuing to the mid palate. The finish is generous but very bitter, so much so as to shock the unexpecting. The wine's fruity, almost blossom-like nose is so beautiful that the bitter finish creates an unpleasant ending for my palate but this is Verdicchio and you must decide for yourself. My score: 87 Points
