Verdicchio di Matelica CASA LUCCIOLA
The wine shows simple but well defined primary aromas of medium intensity characterized by green and citrus fruit, enriched by a somewhat sweet, fresh herbal note of dill. The palate stands out more than the nose, with high but well integrated alcohol, high refreshing acidity, slightly more intense flavors, and a distinctive minerality. The good balance between fruit oncentration and a refreshing acidity, the good alcohol integration, and a lingering almondy finish certainly make it a "good" wine.
