2008 Fazi Battaglia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico

This Verdicchio is made from hand harvested grapes from the estate vineyards of Fazi Battaglia in the classico zone of the Castelli di Jesi in the Marches region of Italy. It's 100% Verdicchio fermented in stainless steel.

This straw yellow colored wine has a beautiful bouquet of white peach, white flower, lemon zest, bread crust or yeast, and hints of mineral.

On the palate the wine is fresh and young and shows hints of citrus, white table grapes, mineral, and light hints of almond. It has quite a ling finish and a bright acidity which would help it to pair very well with shellfish and white sauced pastas.

I like this wine but it needs to be served with food to get the maximum experience out of it. The packaging is very elegant and classic for this type of wine.

Average Retail: $8-11
