La Staffa - Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Classico Superiore, Italy (2019)
Pale straw in colour, this wine is very aromatic with notes of citrus, green apple and almond on the nose and similar flavours on the palette. This wine is medium bodied with great acidity and a lovely finish.
Made by La Staffa with the Verdicchio variety, in the DOC Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, an area between the Apennine hills and the Adriatic Sea with an intriguing mix of terroirs. The vineyards are located about 400 metres above sea level. These are 20-year-old vines planted in calcareous clay soils that, rich in calcium carbonate, give the wines a very unique flavour. They are cultivated using ecological agriculture and biodynamic treatments. Extraordinary value for money and every year they get more and better reviews from experts.
