Villa Bucci, Verdicchio Castelli di Jesi Riserva, Le Marche, Italy 2013
With lemongrass freshness and a pleasing bitterness, this has plenty of Italian charm. Ripe apples and dried apricots overlap oak characters and mineral tones. Medium bodied but full of flavour, this is certainly memorable and has fine ageing potential.
