Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi
Here it proves to be one of Italy’s finest native white grapes, capable of outstanding longevity. It’s in the province of Ancona where you’ll find the Castelli di Jesi DOC and DOCG. The name means the Verdicchio of the castles of Jesi. It refers to the numerous hilltop villages that dominate this region, surrounding the central town of Jesi. Each has its medieval fortress. Communities such as Staffolo, Cupramontana, Montecarrotto, Castelbellino and Castelplanio are some of the main gems. They are balconies offering breathtaking views of their surrounding landscapes. This Marche coastal region, when seen from above, resembles a giant hair-comb. Numerous river valleys cut through limestone and run east-west to the Adriatic. Cooling sea breezes blow unimpeded up these valleys from the coast. Some call Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi “the white Barolo”. That conjures associations of complexity, delicacy, longevity and high quality. Indeed, the best wines are genuinely world-class; beautifully aromatic and fresh when young, yet capable of developing over many years in bottle. At its best, Verdicchio is distinctive, unique and glorious. The older they get, the more complicated they become, and many will peak at between five and ten years. So do buy one bottle to drink now, and another to put away.
