Great Verdicchio for $15!

 Terrific value from the Marche region of Italy. Organic, minimal intervention farming

2021 Borgo Paglianetto Verdicchio di Matelica Petrara...$14.99

The 2021 Verdicchio di Matelica Petrara is coy and understated in the glass, with dusty yellow flowers and nuances of chamomile. It washes across the palate, balancing soft textures with ripe mineral-tinged pit fruits, as inner florals form toward the close. This turns savory and seriously salty through the long and mouthwatering finale, as hints of candied lime linger. More time in bottle should help to further unlock the bouquet of the Petrara, which will be worth waiting for, especially considering the fireworks on the palate.
