2012 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi & Piave Vecchio
2012 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Santa Barbara has a nose of lemon zest, expanded on the palate to include white flowers and a hint of brine. This Verdicchio has a beautiful light body, zesty acidity, and a medium fruity finish. Price: $9.49
The Piave Vecchio is an Italian table cheese from the Veneto Region. It’s structurally similar to Parmesan. Only aged a year, it is still creamy to the back palate. The hint of tropical fruit in the finish plays very well with the Verdicchio.
A perfect Summer pairing!
