Marchetti, Tenuta del Cavaliere D.O.C.
(tehn-OO-tah dehl kah-va-LEE-ray vair-DEE-kee-oh)


Tasting Notes: Maurizio Marchetti makes one of the finest Verdicchio Classico’s we have ever laid our tastebuds on. So, when he introduced his micro-production late harvest Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, we were immediately intrigued. Full-bodied and lush, this is not a sweet wine. It is off-dry, taking advantage of an extra month on the vine to develop greater body, structure, and fruit essence. It is deftly made, with lush pear, melon, and a touch of honey complexion that retains beautiful acidity.
