Mineral-driven and flinty, confit lemon, with a lovely, refreshing salty tang on the finish. Notes of lemon zest and crunchy Granny Smith apples abound. A wonderful classic Verdicchio that is considered by many top winemakers in Italy to be the best.
Vigneron Riccardo Baldi is a rising star, according to Decanter magazine. Located in the rolling hills of Staffolo in the north of the Marche region, La Staffa is an organic winery in the heart of the Verdicchio dei Castelli de Jesi appellation. This area is much influenced by its close proximity to the Adriatic, its high elevation and clay and chalk-rich soils that imbue the wines with a distinctive character.
FROM THE PRESS
“Sharp and laser-focused from the start, offers crisp fruit aromas followed by balanced freshness, crushed limestone, freshly cut grass and a salty mineral layer. These elements play off each other nicely, giving this wine a very linear and determined feel overall”Monica Larner, RobertParker.com November 2023
