Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio 2011

Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio 2011

  • Verdicchio - Verdi-what? It's one of Italy's many indigenous white grape varieties.
  • A slightly green-yellow hue to the grape skins imparts a lovely lemon-gold colour to the finished wine - very attractive in the glass.
  • The altitude and climate of Marche is ideal for growing this citrus fruit-scented white.

In the heart of Italy's Marche region, Monte Schiavo are creating wonderfully innovative and flavoursome whites. This is a stylish and concentrated Verdicchio with fresh, intense aromas of grapefruit and lime, as well as honeyed stone-fruit. The palate is fresh and fruity; very approachable, with apple, pear and ripe stone fruit. A mouth-filling minerality adds to the complexity and weight. Try this with oysters, or langoustines. Deft enough to be a great aperitif too, if your're without a shucker.
