Belisario "le Salse" Verdicchio di Matelica 2021 (Marche, Italy)
Cantine Belisario is a high-quality co-op in Matelica, a town nestled in the Apennine Mountains of central Italy’s Marche region. The members’ vineyards are located in the Alte Valle Esina, a north-south-oriented valley 60 kilometers from the sea. Belisario is one of just a dozen or so producers in the small Verdicchio di Matelica DOC/DOCG.
Often considered the Adriatic’s response to Loire Valley's Melon de Bourgogne grape, this Verdicchio is light and lean with tangerine and green apple on the palate. Racy and mineral with a touch of salinity on the finish thanks to the clay and limestone soils and the salt springs (“Le Salse”) in the valley.
Food Ideas: Black truffle & burrata ravioli, crab cakes, marcona almonds, white clam pizza, chicken meatballs with pesto
