Mirum Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva Fatt. la Monacesca Marche Verdicchio 2006
Beautifully rich in colour, the nose has soft, sweet pear<br/>notes with snappy hints of lime. The palate is super soft, rich and<br/>inviting with a wealth of fruit balanced with subtle cool minerality.<br/> Whilst the wine has already revealed far more than you may expect the<br/>finish is quite sublime: beautiful lifting acidity with a zip of citrus and<br/>grassiness cutting through the richness, providing elegance and extraordinary<br/>length. <br/>(Jake Dean - Fine Wine Sales Manager)
