Marchetti 2018 Tenuta del Cavaliere Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore
Maurizio Marchetti is a charming character leading a charmed life, coming from a wealthy family and married to a cardiologist, Maurizio is free to indulge in his passions, painting and producing the world's best Verdicchio. Marchetti’s incredibly expressive Verdicchio Classico Superiore opens with deep impressions of sweet snap peas, apricots, fruitwood smoke, tarragon, and freshly ground white pepper. On the palate, the wine conveys an impressively concentrated kernel of pear skin, yellow plum, and star fruit backed by brisk acidity, a smoky mineral undercurrent, and suggestions of oolong tea, candied ginger, and jasmine. Full bodied and penetrating, yet balanced and elegant, we guarantee this will be one of the most complex and expressive white wines you will ever taste. And for under $20!
