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.

    • 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, but grown up the road on slightly ...

      Taste Bele Casel Prosecco Colfòndo with me on Weds. Dec. 17 in San Francisco at Biondivino, one of my favorite wine shops in the U.S. Please click here for details. Above: sometimes we forget that one of the coolest things about wine is how beautiful it is. That gorgeous hue is just one of the reasons why I love to serve my friend Paolo Cantele’s Negroamaro rosé at Christmas.

    • 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.

You may know Marche from wines such as Verdicchio, I’m fond of that so it was worth taking a chance on one I hadn’t heard of from the same region. Lacrima means tears and in this case…

    … “Sboccatura Tardiva” (late disgorged) Cantina Maestra “Brut Zero.” I’ve had this wine for the last several vintages and have always been impressed with its purity, balance, acidity and complexity; it’s a marvelous Brut, very dry with a long, satisfying finish; it’s also got a lot of finesse. It’s a great example of how good Alta Langa can…

By the way, if you ever make fried chicken, it is worth spending a few extra minutes making gravy, especially for the morning-after breakfast of sausage-crumble gravy and biscuits. DELISH.
