Andrea Felici is an extremely quality-focused Italian winery. They only produce wines from the Verdicchio grape. They consider it to be the world's finest white wine grape and treat it accordingly. All grapes are hand harvested into small baskets, the wine is fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve aromatics, with three months aging on yeast lees adding texture and body. Their 'Pietragrigia' is benchmark Verdicchio, medium-bodied, easy-drinking with soft citrus fruit, a bright minerality and classic almond notes. We tried a bottle of this as soon as it arrived in and were blown away by the sheer quality and drinkability of this wine. Magnificant.
"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."91 Ian d'Agata
