This is a great example of how good the native Italian Verdicchio variety can be! It's medium-bodied, with firm acidity and a mixed-citrus, apple, and herbal profile. In the hands of La Staffa (in Castelli di Jesi), this older-vine bottling shows a very elegant texture, with the acidity soaring through the moderate fleshiness of fruit into a mouthwatering finish that lingers with the variety's classic hazelnut/toasted white almond accent.

VINOUS 94 POINTS - "The 2019 Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Rincrocca balances richness with power, wafting up dusty and floral, with crushed rocks giving way to masses of nectarine, gingery spice and lime zest. It impresses further with a balanced inner sweetness up front that is perfectly offset by citrus-tinged orchard fruits and salty mineral tones, yet its textures remain nearly oily in feel. This expression of balanced opulence continues through the finale as the 2019 Rincrocca finishes lightly structured with a primary concentration; yet still, the mouth is left watering. An official “wow” is in order. La Staffa continues to overperform vintage after vintage. This is easily one of the top producers of Verdicchio today. " - ERIC GUIDO

"The La Staffa winery is based in the town of Staffolo within the Castelli di Jesi (Castles of Jesi) appellation. The winery was started in 1992 and the estate is led today by it’s young and passionate owner, Riccardo Baldi. I love Verdicchio, and I find these wines to be vibrant, direct, very flavorful, complex and delicious. ‘Rincrocca’ is a selection of old Verdicchio vines. The site is planted with 5 different clones of Verdicchio , 2 of these clones are not available in the market anymore. Notes of almond, citrus, green apple, and herbs, with fresh acidity and a long finish. Delicious as a dry aperitif, or drink with most any seafood dish or roast chicken."
Low-temperature fermentation and aging in cement for a year. Fined with Bentonite, lightly filtered." - Oliver McCrum
