Why we love it
Verdicchio is a white wine made in the Marche, central Italy, and it also is the name of the grape that produces the wine.
Verdicchio, is a very famous Italian wine and one of the first to be exported outside Italy, in the eighties Verdicchio was on tables all over the world, but, due producers more interested in quantity than quality, its reputation faded and slowly disappeared, but the name is still very much known.
In the last few years, thanks to a new breed of young producers interested in quality, Verdicchio is coming back into fashion and some great wines have started to appear, including wood aged Verdicchio, as to prove that the grape can, if properly grown, produce much more than easy, tasteless, one year white wines.
Luciano Landi, with his sons, is one of them; their Verdicchio is, certainly according to us, one of the best we have tasted within the category, it has a beautiful fruity nose, reminding of Golden apples, with a fresh and elegant palate, refreshing, harmonious and persistent, dry.
The artisan who made it
The Marche is a region where growing grapes is relatively simple due to the perfect climate, with scenic mountains and a calming sea to protect the vines. Regardless of these ideal surroundings, Luciano Landi and his sons, as well as his father before him, decided they wanted to aim for quality rather than quantity and decided to concentrate their efforts in only a few hectares of vineyards from which they grow native grapes such as the Verdicchio and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba but also Syrah and Montepulciano for their top wines.
