Colle Stefano has been our absolute favorite Verdicchio at Hi-Time for many years and has been embraced by our customers as a perfect white wine for summer. Ian D'Agata of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar has said, "I think it is probably Italy's single greatest white wine buy."
The 2019 vintage just arrived and is fantastic! We were extremely pleased and delighted when we tasted it. It is clean, crisp and dry-a white hot summer sipper not to be missed!
This organic white comes from the little town of Matelica is in the Marche region and has been consistent in quality, winning at least two or three glasses from the noted Italian publication Gambero Rosso almost every year. Winemaker Fabio Marchionni keeps yields extremely low and makes wine with painstaking care. You could eat off the floor of the winery (and hygiene is very important when making this kind of white wine). It is fermented and matured entirely in stainless steel (no oak) and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. This wine is racy, vivid, and excellent with light fare or on its own.
This wine is dry and light-bodied with crisp acidity and good structure. This wine is charming on the nose with a bouquet of nectarines, chamomile and lemon blossoms, and equally pleasing on the palate with flavors of white peach, kaffir lime and nectarines. This wine is vibrant and quenching at every sip with pleasing minerality. The finish is long and enhanced by its lively acidity. This is a wine that would pair well with grilled halibut, salads, or shrimp on the barbie. Delicious!

This is a wine which takes its name from the farmhouse of the same name, nestling in the heart of the cultivation area of the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi which the Bianchi family used to make by vinifying the grapes from the surrounding vineyard. Today Villa Bianchi aims to express all the typical features of Verdicchio by bringing out in particular its aromatic notes of freshness and elegance. This is all achieved by careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard, and through the use of vinification techniques aimed at preserving intact the aromatic character inherent in the variety.
You can discern yellow plum, apple and peach notes in these wines. Crisp acids create a fresh finish, making these wines ideal for a variety of foods.
