Perhaps the best Verdicchio of its class and pure aperitif pleasure. Like many great styles it balances opposites - weighty and nuanced with (gently) opulent tree fruit and florals, seen from a different side it is perfectly clean and fresh, with fine acidity and a Riesling-like chalky mineral streak from elevations high in the Marche hills. One of our best whites and not in stock forever - white-lovers and Europhiles take heed.

Overview

Grape

Verdicchio

Its Origins

In the elevations of the Marche hills, Leopardo Felici takes the course of greatest resistance to ensure that his viticultural and winemaking perfectionism is fully exercised. Outstanding terroir too plays a part in allowing the beloved (and wildly undervalued) local grape Verdicchio to express its opulent fruit, aromatic charm, textural layering and mineral overtones in every vintage of their two estate wines. Exceeding normal practices and rules on every front, Felici not only manages to make ‘vino biologico’ with utter cleanliness and clarity of flavour, but more generally bring to vineyard and winery that incomparable quality of only the very most gifted producers: overwhelming, genuine and palpable love of their work.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata 

(latest note from 2014)"Medium straw-yellow. White flowers and almond dominate the nose. Enters the mouth juicy and fresh, then turns bigger and rounder, showing a suave, glyceral mouthfeel to the ripe apple and pear flavors. Laser-like acidity keep this wine light and lively on the palate. The finish is long and extremely saline."
