Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Superiore

This wine is made from Verdicchio grapes and matured on the lees for six months in stainless steel vats.

It has a bright colour with light green reflections. Notes of green almonds, acacia flowers, star anise and citrus on the nose lead into white peach and apricot flavours. This is a phenomenal Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi produced in one of the top winery in le Marche region: Tenuta di Tavignano.

There's bright acidity and a good lenght, also the wine has a very pleasant richness. You should definitely try it with 'Stocco all’Anconetana', Ancona style stockfish... a local adaption of dried codfish, cooked low and slow with potatoes, tomatoes and herbs. Misco would do well also with chiken or rabbit.

Marche

Marche is a region on the eastern side of central Italy. It stretches over a triangle delimited by the Apennine Mountains to the west and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Thanks to the various climates created by the influences of the Apennines, the Adriatic and the region’s rivers (the Metauro, Potenza, Tronto and Nera), wine producers cultivate in both warm and cool viticultural zones. Calcareous, clay and limestone-rich soils contribute to the distinctive terroir. Marche is best known as a white-wine region, although it is also home to some high quality reds. The principal white varieties here are the ubiquitous Trebbiano and Verdicchio, grapes that have been found in the Marches for over 600 years. The DOCGs Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica are the finest expressions of Verdicchio. Among the red wines of Marche, the finest are generally made from Montepulciano and Sangiovese, the dark-skinned varieties used in the intensely fragrant Rosso Conero Riserva. and an extensive system of hills descending towards the Adriatic sea.
