Accattoli Verdicchio 2005, D.O.C. Verdicchio di Matelica . **HERITAGE WINE**

Colour:  light yellow with some green.
Nose:  quite expressive, fresh, with richness and a wealth of subtle, ripe and clean impressions of pine apple, apple, a touch of yeast, ginger, fennel, some herbs and beautiful minerals, some depth, refined and with excellent balance.
Taste:  quite full bodied, round, but also fresh, some alcohol, a piquant acidity, matching the other components, nice fruit and richness with an attractive bitterness providing tension and character, very clean style, excellent balance.
Finish: long, quite intense, fanning out, fresh, clean, with an attractive (mild) bitterness, many mineral nuances, some spices and herbs, subtle impressions of almonds and white fruit, good balance.

* A very attractive dry white wine with good and interesting regional character, a delicious freshness, nice richness and intensity, beautiful white fruit, minerals, a touch of nuts and herbs, very pure and clean style, excellent balance, great value for (little) money.

- Drink this wine somewhere between now and  2007, maybe 2008.

- This wine shows how modern technique and terroir can make a winning combination in the hands of a devoted and capable wine producer. It shows regional character needs not to be sacrificed for attractiveness and consumer appeal. This very affordable wine (from the Marche region) has everything one would expect of a modern wine with the extra bonus of a unique style. Never could one make such a wine from e.g. Chardonnay, the aroma's of the regional Verdicchio grape are beautifully highlighted. The fruit, but also mineral and herb like and almondy impressions give this wine its interesting character that is ideal to complement both rich and lighter fish dishes. It is only matured in stainless vats hence the young and fresh style.
If you like Chardonnay but want something else, more exiting perhaps, try this wine and let it open for you a new and rich world of taste experiences beyond the oceans of well produced wines of already (too) famous grapes and wine regions.
