Why we love it
Verdicchio is a white wine made in the Marche, central Italy, and a very famous one, Verdicchio was one of the first to be exported outside Italy, in the eighties Verdicchio was on tables all over the world, but, due to producers more interested in quantity than quality, its reputation faded away and slowly disappeared, but the name is still very much known and bring memories of Italian restaurants of the 80s.
In the last few years, thanks to a new breed of young producers interested in quality, Verdicchio has come 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, white wines.
Luciano Landi, with his sons, is one of them; their Verdicchio is, according to us, one of the best wine we have tasted within the appellation, it has a beautiful fruity nose, reminding of Golden apples, with a fresh and elegant palate, refreshing, harmonious and persistent, dry.
A great accompaniment to fish dishes, such as the famous local fish soup or to drink with a salad.
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.
