New Italian Verdicchio

Now available in both Ultimate Estate Reserve and Traditional Vintage: VERDICCHIO from Italy!

new verdicchioThe name Verdicchio (vair-dik-ee-oh) derives from verde (or “green”) and refers to the slight green/yellow hue of the grapes when they are ripe.  The Verdicchio grape presents a clean, fresh aroma of green apple, white currant, citrus, floral and mineral.  This medium-bodied, refreshing white wine sings on the palate with flavours of lemon, green apple and almond, making for a perfect aperitif.  Best enjoyed while young and fresh.

Serve with baked or poached firm fish with dill, seafood salads, green salads with light vinaigrettes, spring pea risottos, lemon chicken, steamed mussels and shellfish.
