2011 Brunori Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico San Nicolo

Merchant Reviews

The 6 hectares of the San Nicolò vineyard are located in the heart of the Verdicchio D.O.C, 200 meters above sea level. The varietal has been vinified in this area since the 15th century. Having produced excellent Verdicchio for three generations, the Brunori family has achieved a perfect balance of tradition in the vineyard (no chemicals, hand-harvesting, respect of the sandy soils) and innovation in the cellar (soft-pressing and microfiltering).

In the glass, the wine has a medium deep, saturated green-gold color. Fresh hay, dried honeycomb, almonds, and citrus emerge in the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and sapid, with plenty of dry extract, deep saline minerality, and bright citric acidity. The layered sweet core of dried honey, lemon zest, butter, and almonds is seasoned with delicate bitterness, and the long elegant finish is punctuated with mineral grip. This is a perfect wine for Mediterranean seafood, including marine fish, shellfish, and crustaceans. Drink Now – 2020.
