  • Score: 89 Vintage 2023 Vinous Media The 2023 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Querciantica opens with a pretty blend of dried flowers, raw almonds and young peach. It’s oily in texture with a core of brisk acidity and tart orchard fruits to balance. Tactile mineral tones add form toward the close. The 2023 tapers off long and classically dry, with tart lime traces that curl the tongue. This is a beautifully balanced Verdicchio, especially at this price point. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2022 Wine Enthusiast This wine leaps out of the glass with white grapefruit and passion fruit aromas with a note of asparagus. Zippy and bright with punchy acidity and tart tropical and citrus fruit flavors. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Upfront and fruit forward, this wine has aromas of green apple and a distinct sea salt note. The palate is refreshing and zippy with mineral notes mixed with orchard fruits, lemon and lime. It finishes with a bright pop of acidity. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Vinous Media The 2021 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Querciantica blends almond paste and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar with pretty notes of peach and candied lime. It envelopes the palate in waves of ripe orchard fruits, yet quickly gains in tension, as a mix of salty minerals and citrus-tinged acids cuts through like a hot knife. This finishes spicy and tense, with a cheek-puckering sensation, yet it leaves the mouth watering for more. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Velenosi Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico is intense and vibrant from the get-go, with a fruity display that mixes sweet pear with lime. Then the wine evolves to show crushed stone minerality and wild herbs. It’s round and pliant, giving up its ripe melon fruit generously while also maintaining energy and verve. At times salty, at other times sour with green citrus, yet at all times a highly enjoyable glass of Verdicchio. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Some white pepper and herbs are mixed up with lemon and apple curd. Medium-bodied, round and quite appley on the finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
