Kermit Lynch Selection 2020 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Marche, Italy
Verdicchio is an ancient grape grown in the hilly Marche region of Italy’s Adriatic coast, mostly grown in the Castelli di Jesi commune, and Italians from Marche are quite proud of their world class white wine. This is another dry, crisp white wine built for seafood but it also carries enough weight to pair well with a wide variety of foods. We were quite happy when Kermit Lynch began importing this great value Verdicchio from Azienda Santa Barbara. Their Verdicchio is slightly more generous and round with fruit than most but still offers that classic zippy minerality and freshness. A perfect introduction to this sophisticated white wine.
