Verdicchio di Matelica is lesser known and one tenth the size of Verdiccio dei Castella di Jesi. The high elevations produce riper fruit that round out this complex wine.
Though this Verdicchio comes from a region that’s land-locked we get lovely sea-air briny notes on the nose with ripe fruit of pear and apples with a nice bitter citrus note on the finish. More of the same on the palate with nice acidity to balance.
Grown primarily in Campania and Sicily, Fiano is a small, thick skinned grape that dates back to Roman times. Fiano fell out of favor because of its low yields, but this native grape is currently making a comeback. We get ripe apple and pear with lemony citrus and stony minerality, which gives this lovely white some nice complexity. Try it with: Sea scallops with lemon zest and olive oil on linguine, grilled corn with chick peas red onions dressed in vinaigrette, roasted chicken wings.
Located in Northeast Italy, near the Austrian border, and one of the three regions making up the Tre-Venezie, Veneto is most famous for its two romantic cities - Venice and Verona.
The wine is left on its lees in stainless steel tanks for three months, adding weight and concentration. We get touches of pear and lemon citrus on the nose. The palate is dominated by citrus, nice acidity, and minerality. Crisp and fresh, just what a Pinot Grigio should be.
Dropped the new vintage. Falanghina is a native white grape from Campania a region which has been producing wine since the 13th century. Vesevo has captured the grape's vibrant nose with apricot, pear, peach, honeysuckle, and a touch of floral - all this without oak. On the palate, you’ll find abundant fruit and a long creamy (but refreshing) finish with a tad bit of minerality. Try it with: Black cod with miso, curry dishes, sea bass, artisan cheese plate
