Gordon’s Wine Picks

Pievalta 2015 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi hails from the Ancona province of the Italian coastal region of Marche. Clay and limestone soils amplify fresh minerality and freshness of fruit character. Hints of sweet almonds and a streak of citrus show in this lightly aromatic varietal wine. Because Verdicchio maintains high levels of tartaric acidity, the wine can be crisp, refreshing and highly age-worthy. Verdicchio excels when paired with all things seafood, such as ceviche, steamed mussels and fish tacos. Beautiful wine!
