Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico by Montecappone | 2017

$19.00

If you've never had this mineral-gushing Italian white, then you're in for a treat! Arguably Italy's most beloved white, Verdicchio screams heat-wave summer, crispy things from the sea, and big bowls of bitter greens. Just inland from the seaside town of Ancona, in the area of Jesi, Montecappone was one of the first wineries to make Verdicchio in a light and fresh, non-oxidative style (i.e. not overly golden or nutty). Without a lick of oak, this 2017 tees-up July with big citrus, oozy peach and sweet piney greens, followed by a nice coat of mineral and ocean salt which reminds me of a fine Chablis. But we're not in France anymore, so just say, "Verdicchio!"
