Description

La Staffa, a small family-owned winery, lies in the heart of the Marche’s Castelli di Jesi region. Their Verdicchio has aromas of lemon, white peach and a hint of lime, while the palate reveals more lemon and peach with a waxy, slightly honeyed note. This is bright and elegant with a lovely mineral spine, refreshing acidity and a saline finish.

Jancis Robinson
Light fresh and floral on the nose. Racy and very well balanced even if not that complex.

Verdicchio

Verdicchio is one of the most widely planted white grape varieties in the Marche region of central Italy. It has been cultivated for over 600 years and is the grape behind two of the Marche's most important DOCs – Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, to the west of Ancona and 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea, and Verdicchio di Matelica, further inland and at a higher altitude, close to the Umbria border.

Verdicchio's name is derived from verde, meaning green, referring to the yellowish-green skin of the grape, which gives the wine a subtle, greenish hue. It produces crisp, dry, mineral wines of naturally high acidity, often with hints of citrus fruits and almonds. It is also well suited to the production of sparkling wine and Verdicchio was one of the first Italian spumantes back in the 19th century.

Verdicchio has recently been proven to be identical to Trebbiano di Soave, Trebbiano di Lugana (aka Turbiana) and Trebbiano Veltenesi.
