Villa Bucci Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Riserva 2017


In Stock

“Ampelio Bucci is the dean of Verdicchio wine and makes some of Italy’s best and most ageworthy white wines. Though his “Classico” wine is a beauty, it’s his Riserva that can, in some vintages – the 2002, for example – turn into a truly world-beating wine of uncommon complexity, depth and refinement. Ever the perfectionist, he was, when I saw him late last year, unhappy with his red wines made with Montepulciano and Sangiovese (which are actually perfectly fine wines by almost everybody else’s less exacting standards) and told me he was seriously considering replacing them with more Verdicchio.”
