Colonnara Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Cuprese 2011
I drink Verdicchio wines way too seldom. This is a good reminder of
just how interesting the wines can be, and what kind of value they can offer.
2011 Colonnara Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Cuprese
A bit muted aromatically: some honey, wet hay.
On the palate medium bodied with decent acidity. Good, intense fruit; melon, lime, some herbs, flowers. Highly delicious, and intriguing flavors. Finish is really really flinty, dusty, almost austere;
leaving a very long, honeyed, a bit herbal aftertaste with a sligthly bitter chalkyness. Some taste reminds me of Vermouth, in a good way.
Fine, multidimensional Verdicchio!
