When Gianluca's Uncle, the head winemaker for Garofoli made this wine, he had one ambition in his mind. Up until that point Verdicchio was known as a wine that was cheap and rather bland but he saw the potential the Verdicchio grapes could show in the Castelli di Jesi area. He then worked for 20 years to find the right clones for exactly the right vineyard to make a wine which he knew would end up on the Podium and he did it. Wow. 

Verdicchio is often known as a red wine dressed in white because the structure of it is so similar to a red wine. This will stand up well against roasted pork, for examples and if you're able to resist opening it and can keep it cellared for 5-7years, you'll fall in love with all over again as it develops more intense, rich, even petrol aromas...
