Colle Stefano has to be one of the most consistent producers we carry from Italy, if not anywhere. It's almost to the point that we don't need to even taste the new vintage each year as we know this Verdicchio is going to be bright, racy and delicious. It's a wine that feels so fresh and clean you almost want to bathe in it, well, probably not, but you get the idea! We recently tried the very tiny production sparkling Verdicchio which really blew us away. Stay tuned for when we get it in.....Verdicchio is the principal white grape of Le Marche, the region that borders Umbria, to the east, and the Adriatic Ocean to the west. There are two main DOCs; Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi, which is closer to the sea and Verdicchio di Matelica, which is further inland. Verdicchio de Castelli di Jesi Classico is a DOCG. The Marchionni family came to the village of Rustano Castelraimondo in the 1960s in search of a better life. After years of hard work they were able to purchase Colle Stefano in the hills of Matelica in 1978. It wasn't until 1998 when son Fabio started bottling their organically farmed Verdicchio and it has been a standout for the appellation ever since. As we keep telling everyone, we love this wine for its clean flavors (no oak) and racy acidity.
