Winemaker Notes

Deep straw yellow. Pleasingly fruity with a persistent bouquet, showing notes of Golden Delicious apples and almonds. Good body and silky texture on the well-balanced and elegant palate.

Ideal as an aperitif, or with pasta, fish risotto, white meat, and mild cheese.

Flint and slate character with cooked lemons and sliced apples. Full body, plenty of fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Here's a fun wine that takes us back to the origins of winemaking with Verdicchio. The Villa Bucci 2016 Verdicchio Classico Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Bucci is aged in 70-year-old oak casks (made with Slavonian oak) for three years. The time in barrel is not much, but the wine's contact with these almost completely neutral barrels is fundamental to its integration and balance. You get citrus and honeydew aromas with some dried garden herb and crushed stone, perfect for raw stone clams and cocktail sauce. Rating: 90+

Bucci, Italy
Bucci  Winery Image

The Buccis have owned land and made wine in Castelli di Jesi since the 1700s, originating in one of the “castles” themselves-Montecarotto. Their impressive heritage might have daunted a lesser man. However, Ampelio Bucci has succeeded in maintaining the best of tradition, old vines, estate-grown fruit, and the use of native varieties, while revolutionizing quite a few of Italy’s traditional winemaking tenets. Most notably, the old assumption that whites should be lighter, crisper, shorter-lived and reds should steer clear of mellowness, liveliness, and fish. Ampelio work along with enologist Giorgio Grai. Not content with the estate’s longtime standing as the benchmark of the appellation, in 2002 Ampelio and Giorgio have worked to have the winery officially certified as 100% organic farming. Vinification and élevage take place in the underground winery, which maintains a naturally cool temperatures and makes refrigeration unnecessary: yet another example of Bucci’s devotion to being eco-friendly.

Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

One of central Italy’s classic white grapes, Verdicchio thrives in two distinct zones of the Marche. The best vineyards of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi adorn hillsides a mere 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea. The vineyards of the smaller, more inland Verdicchio di Matelica, are at higher elevation. Somm Secret—Recent genetic discoveries have proven that the Verdicchio grape is identical to Trebbiano di Soave, Trebbiano di Lugana and Trebbiano Veltenesi.
