Review:
Bisci has really impressed me over the course of recent tastings, with a portfolio of higher-elevation Verdicchio that speaks of variety and terroir above all else. Their entry-level 2019 Verdicchio di Matelica is no exception. Honied florals, honeydew melon, crisp yellow apple and hints of citrus set the stage for soothing textures that balance ripeness of fruit against stimulating mineral tones. There’s a sweet-and-sour sensation here that creates further intrigue, as well as lending a drink-me-now persona to the wine. All is in perfect balance here. The fruit hails from the estate’s hillside vineyards at 300-350 meters, while the wine spends eight months on the lees.
