Funky Italian White – Il Coroncino, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi (not Jedi)

20 Oct


Popped the cork on one of these little babies last night.  Yumminess factor = Yes.  Beautifully textured, viscous almost oily wine, fun flavours, with great length and that Italian silvery lining of bitterness to clean up the finish. The bitter bit rocks, I often see it in Italian whites. To me it’s part of what makes so many Italian whites great food wines.  It really helps to clean up your palate.

In case you’re having a challenge with the name – “Fattoria Coroncino” is the producer, “Il Coroncino” is the name of the wine “Verdicchio” is the grape variety, a native Italian and Castelli di Jesi (the Castles of Jesi) is where it is from near Ancona on the East coast in line with Perugia.

Fattoria Coroncino also make a Verdicchio called “Gaiospino”, also very yummy but cost about twice as much as the Il Coroncino (about mid $30’s).
