Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi

By | July 17, 2007

It looks like the Tour is conspiring against me – a Columbian stage winner. I have never tried or even heard of Columbian wine. A quick search turned up ice wines from British Columbia, but nothing from Columbian Columbia. I’d been rooting for Mayo and Valverde (even though I lost a tenner on him in the National) as I have something of a backlog of Rioja’s.
I missed the highlights as I was out chatting about The Talented Mr Ripley. Reading it had me pining for Italy. A recent visit from a friend who had been on a half hearted house hunting trip to Le Marche gave me an excuse to try a few Verdicchios.
We had a Monte Schiavo Ruviano Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi 2005. It was bright and fresh with plenty of clean and refreshing grapefruit and just a little green plum. At about a fiver it was good value, and went wonderfully with the seafood pasta it washed down.

    As he crossed the line I thought I wonder what Golly will come up with here.
