La Marca crafts a splendid Verdicchio

2017 La Marca di San Michele, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Classico Superiore, Capovolto (RT92+) A stunningly pure and elegant Verdicchio crafted using organic farming with some biodynamic practices integrated. This is the work of a small winemaker producing a mere 2000 cases total wine per vintage. Whole cluster fermentation followed by 7 months on lees in stainless and finished with 4 months in bottle. The combination of a perfect vineyard site and deft winemaking result in pure magic. The bouquet is rich and decadent, with hints of soft citrus, white flowers, hazelnuts, and hints of limestone minerality. The texture is mouthcoating and rich leading to an extended finish that’s packed with perfectly ripe fruit. With time in the glass a notable salinity emerges. A rock star that outperforms its price point in a meaningful way! Drink now-2026
