Verdicchio is the perfect grape to capture the essence of the green, rolling hills of Italy’s Le Marche region, along the Adriatic coast directly east of Tuscany. This is no accident – we are the beneficiaries of hundreds of years of trial and error. Verdicchio itself has a little greenness, in both color and flavor, a fresh springtime green. For those of you who discovered our first vintage, the 2014, this 2015 has a bit more richness and concentration. It has a hint of anise, too. Aromatic, fleshy, dry, and savory, this type of white wine has chameleon-like qualities. Enjoy it year-round, day and night, without thinking too hard about food pairings. I’m having it tonight with zucchini flowers from our garden stuffed with ricotta and herbs and lightly pan-fried in olive oil.
