One of the wines we are the most excited about for our July 28 “Night in the Marche” dinner with Tony is the Garofoli Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Superiore Podium.
Many still remember the ubiquitous fish-shaped, green bottles of Verdicchio that used to be shipped from the Marche to the United States back in the 1970s. At the time, nearly all the white wine that reached the U.S. from the Marche was inexpensive table wine.
But today, Verdicchio from the Marche has emerged as one of Italy’s greatest white wines, comparable to the finest whites of France.
On Thursday, July 28, Tony will be pouring the Garofoli Verdicchio, a rich and elegant wine that fine wine collectors and red wine lovers are raving about.
After vinification (i.e., its transformation from grape to wine), the wine is “aged on its lees” for 15 months, similarly to the whites of Burgundy. The lees (the sediment that forms in wine after vinification) give it a creamy, mouth-watering character and intense flavors and aromas.
Even the Napa Cab lover will surely appreciate its grace, power, and structure.
“The July 28 event is one not to be missed,” says Tony. “And the wines will be poured generously, as always.”
