La Monacesca 2014 DOC Verdicchio di Matelica (Italy)

La Monacesca 2014 DOC Verdicchio di Matelica (Italy), $17.59-$21.99, 90 points, poured a deep glossy gold color.
Subtle honeysuckle and quince on the nose were good.
Almost medium-bodied with appropriate acidity managed a delightful dry white wine having a citrus and pome flavored profile with a robust, but changeable texture: soft early palate transitioning to a more gripping texture on the finish.
Finished long on wet stone with hints of black pepper, tart grapefruit, lime, fresh-cut hay, and a restrained 12.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my Asian cuisine.
This was my first Verdicchio; it was unlike any other white wine I've tasted.
I bought this Italian white wine at the Whole Foods of Bedford.

  1. Sounds really nice, love Italian whites.

    1. VG: As adventurers in exploring wines, it's always exciting to find excellent esoteric (for me) wines, but using this exploration to promote Italy at this time is even more a blessing.
