Brut Verdicchio

Yeasty and very apple-y. Intense apple and stone flavors are forceful and dry. My brother said it’s reminiscent of apple sauce and he’s right. Nice balance and crispness. — 8 days ago

Mirum Verdicchio di Matelica 2019

Used to love this but haven’t had since late 90’s. Nose is what I remember. Got that swimming pool thing big time and also some sweet lime zest and gobs of minerality. Herbs as well. Very complex and nice. Love the mineral drive of this wine. Juicy and perfectly balanced. Nose gets very expansive with air. Very saline and mineral on the finish. Nice wine. But not sure it makes the cut. With air picks up weight and concentration. — a month ago

Colle Stefano

Verdicchio di Matelica 2019

Nice perfume as this opens. Citrus, yellow plum and fruit blossom. Clean, tart, austere and a little thin at first but gains volume as it open. I think this would be really great to cook with, and I mean that in a complimentary way. — 24 days ago

I have no idea what vintage this is. Maybe an 18 or maybe 30 vintages blended a la Krug? Going with 18 now and will Google after the fact. Nose is complex and layered with lovely lemon/lime/herbs and so much more. Orange zest. Intense dried herbs. Really just an amalgam of all types of citrus but has that unreal swimming pool character and mineral force that great Matelica has. Even some spice. Out of this world nose. Super compelling. Really dig it. Huge power, depth and concentration. But also backwards a f. This needs mega mega air but man is all the material there. Slippery and round on the palate with awesome purity and freshness. Wow what length. This is a very very serious wine. The mineral force on the finish is something else. This is screaming for bronzino or marinated mussels. Structure here is substantial. Really a benchmark bottle of Matelica. I’m sure my score will go up with air as this is giving maybe 10% of what it could. Huge upside here! — a month ago
