Umani Ronchi Verdicchio Verdicchio Dei Castelli di Jesi 2009
The grapes for this great Verdicchio are harvested from the 14ha Casal di Serra vineyard in Montecarotto. Ripeness is ensured by harvesting slightly later than usual, and yields are kept very low (80/90 hundredweight/hectare, less than half the usual for Verdicchio). Grapes are hand harvested and pumped into a Vaslin press. A proportion of the wine undergoes a cold soak process, which allows a better extraction of varietal characteristics. Following this, the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks for 5 months, after which it is bottle aged for a few more months prior to release. The result of all this effort is a wine with intense, round and fresh aromas leading to a dry, soft palate with notes of ripe peaches, apples, exotic fruits, hazelnuts, butter and minerality. Serve it on its own on warm summer days or with one of the following: shrimp toast with pickled ginger, pasta with summer vegetables, citrus tarragon chicken or warm jasmine rice salad with shrimp and Thai herbs.
Yummy, yummy, yummy. This wine is fantastic for the money. Heck, it's fantastic for a lot more money! Floral and sour... in a great way. Highly recommended.
