Occasional Wine Note: This wine has so much going on. Bright fruits, spice, nuts, mineral, and a bit of salinity all combine beautifully in this loffering from one of the 2 most famous wine regions of Marches for the Verdicchio grape (the other being Verdicchio di Metalica). Delicious!

    At each tilt of the glass, the 2019 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Podium reveals something new. At first, it shows gingery spice, white smoke and yellow flower notes, then it evolves into sour melon, young mango and wet stone aromas. Finally, it turns flinty, with crushed apples and raw almonds. The silky textures are almost glycerol-like, even though it is seemingly weightless in feel. It hovers above the senses while being propelled by vibrant acidity and saturating mineral tones, as ripe orchard fruits and inner florals cascade across the palate. It leaves you with an achingly youthful impression, the combination of structure and lingering notes of bitter grapefruit rind and granny smith apples. The 2019 Podium is a classic in the making; and while it can be enjoyed today, the best is yet to come.

    Bright straw yellow. Fine aromas of white-fleshed fruits with clear herbaceous and spicy hints. Full, dense, almost creamy in the mouth, very balanced and closes with notes that vary between citrus fruits and almonds, with a long and salty finish.
