Review:
The 2018 Verdicchio di Matelica Vigneto Fogliano is floral and elegant, showing yellow and green citrus, with wonderfully pure ripe melon and a hint of raw honey. It’s medium weight hosts silky textures which are perfectly matched by ripe stone fruits, with saline-minerality adding complexity and grip, while riding a core of stimulating acidity. There’s really so much to like here. Its body, richness and primary fruit speak of the calcareous clay soils these vines grow in, at an elevation between 300-350 meters and with a full southern exposure. The Fogliano spends 18 months on the lees in cement tank before bottling. It’s a gorgeous wine.
