Castelli di Jesi tends to hog the limelight when it comes to Verdicchio but we feel that the wines from Matelica tend to have a slight edge in terms of interest and complexity. ColleStefano is a wonderful organic property nestled among its private vineyards above Castelraimondo. The altitude (450m above sea level) provides protection from the sea winds and makes for a temperate climate. Their immaculate vineyards are part of a broader self-sustainable, eco-friendly and balanced system, with the soils only treated with organic manure, thus minimizing the presence of copper.
This wonderful Verdicchio is so vibrant and a joy to drink. Rich in both acidity and body, with zesty fruit characters spiked with aniseed and citrus notes. The acidity is beautifuly fresh and lifting being impeccably balanced throughout. Delicious whilst yooung, but also surprisingly age worthy in good vintages.

2019 Manda Chuva, Vinho Regional Peninsula de Setubal
On the nose the Manda Chuva frmo Heredade de Portocarro is very mineral-like with saline tinges and white fleshed fruits. The palate is imposing, assertive and has superb minerality. This complex white wine will continue to develop with a few years in bottle, but whilst young taking a sip is just like taking a dip in the Atlantic!

2021 Scheid District 7 Chardonnay, Monterey, California
Superb value, the Scheid District 7 Chardonnay comes from a vineyard at Greenfeld where the morning fog lingers to protect the vines from the heat of the sun. The aromas are fresh and extroverted with notes of yellow apple, pear and citrus, enhanced by hints of coconut, vanilla and toasty oak. The medium-bodied palate is soft and balanced with bright fruit, hints of butter and a lingering subtle oak finish.
