Bucci, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Classico, 2007.
Now, I have to say, I have never had a Verdicchio like this. Usually Verdicchio is, ummm, you know, a little spritzy and cheap tasting. No oak, just light and refreshing. So when Susan at Dominick's recommended this wine to us, I wasn't expecting to be impressed. But, of course, because Susan recommended it us, I should have known it would be delicious!
It was so richly textured. Creamy and soft. Not at all austere. It still had citrus and lemon components, but more like lemon curd vs. biting into a lemon!
It's a great deal too. Around $25 (I can't remember exactly - oops!) on the wine list.
