When that happens, there’s sure to be a delicious bottle of wine floating around, like this delicious Verdicchio from La Distesa. Unctuous, oily and full of ripe yellow plums, this is a classic expression of Verdicchio di Casteli di Jesi. The wine is elevated by a minerally, steely backbone of vertical acidity. Clearly a masterpiece from a small producer who must be in love with this elegant indigenous grape. Love it!
