Stefano Mancinelli Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Santa Maria Fiore
Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore DOC
Verdicchio is an excellent grape, perhaps Italy’s best. Stefano Mancinelli's is a fine ambassador that always combines green apple freshness with fine structure and alluring layers of honey and almond.
The two Verdicchio wines are taken from the same vineyards and made pretty much the same way. The difference is that this is a selection of the oldest and the best vines.
A cooler vintage, the alcohol is down a few points which has brought out the mineral Lutheran side of verdicchio. Pear, lychee and white flower aromas, beautifully textured with wild honey and candied lemon, grapefruit and ripe herb. The flavours linger and develop well after the glass has emptied, a complex mineral wine that will develop intensity over the next few years. 13%
