Verdicchio [verˈdikkjo] is a white Italian wine grape variety grown primarily in the Marche region of central Italy. The name Verdicchio derives from verde (or "green") and refers to the slight green/yellow hue that wines made from the grape can have.Verdicchio is the principal grape behind two Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) wines produced in the provinces of Ancona and Macerata, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica. In addition to producing still wines, Verdicchio grapes are also used to make sparkling wine and straw wine.

    • Villa Bucci Riserva 2009

      There is so much tension at the edge of something, sometimes pushing ourselves into new scenarios can be more anxious than exciting. There is a stereotype that challenge is ‘good’. Challenge is hard. And there is no universal justice ensuring that risk-takers are rewarded. That myth is tired. Sometimes we fail, sometimes others prevent us from succeeding.

  • Verdicchio di Matelica Poggio alle Rondini 2013

    … I am partial to a regular Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, not just when it comes in the super-cool “Gina Lollobrigida” bottles. Okay so not everyone thinks those hourglass bottles are super-cool, but that’s probably because they are not super-cool people. This Verdicchio di Matelica Poggio alle Rondini is made from the same kind of grapes…

  • Valdinera 2013 Roero Arneis, Piemonte

    … Arneis is my favorite Italian white wine. Until recently I had all but given up – Verdicchio and Trebbiano weren’t getting it done for me. They seemed rather bland – and I veered away from Pinot Grigio quite some time ago. A couple years ago I arranged an evening meal at a great Italian restaurant in San Diego for our board of directors. We…

  • Fonte Del Re Lacrima di Morro d’Alba 2012

    … When I first saw this bottle on the shelves of Marks and Spencer I did a little dance of glee, thinking I’d found Lacrima Christi from Naples in a UK supermarket. Having taken my glasses off and held the bottle in the tiny range of my focusing distance for reading gold type on a purple background I realised it wasn’t that Lacrima, but no tears…

  • Thoughts on Tre Bicchieri 2015

    … for years; this has typical Monforte weight and tannins, yet it is not as forceful as many other Barolos from this commune. The 2008 is particularly elegant with the grip and weight to age well for 25 years or more. Landscape of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi zone (Photo ©Tom Hyland) I was thrilled to read that 11 examples of Verdicchio were awarded…

  • Some New Italian Wine Finds for Vancouver?

    … Some New Italian Wine Finds for Vancouver? Italian wines put a smile on my face and many other wine lovers I know. Grapes that are native to Italy, and not as wide-spread around the world like Barbera, Nebbiolo, Rondinella and Corvina produce wines that are very interesting and flavourful. But Italy still has to work hard to get the general…

    … to open. The “giftor” says the wine is outta whack while others find it full flavored and jummie. It is full and tannic. Worth buying once the price drops which it will. Sit on it at least a year. 13% 2012 Bucci Verdicchio Classico dei Castelli di Jesi $20 ($48 on the list): Delicious white wine. The 250% markup on the wine list is normal. The wine…

    … decided to set it up in our girls’ playroom, which added to their excitement because food is not allowed in the playroom. Felipe is so talented and resourceful and every dish reflected things I had told him about Tracie. The frittata di pasta, a nod to her years in Naples (above, right), a Parthenopean classic, was rivaled only by the superb…

  • Groovy wines tasted in LA last week & an AMAZING Sardinian

    … personal highlights from last week’s tastings. Supreme among them was the 1999 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Riserva Le Case (above). What a wine! I tasted the 1998 last year in Philadelphia at Vetri and found this vintage to be even more mineral-driven and nuanced with layers and layers of dried and fresh stone fruit. Simply…
