Verdicchio is the star of the show in Le Marche. It is a green wine, in the sense that it is a sharply acidic, bone dry white that is classically paired with seafood. I love it because it is so true to character, so authentic unapologetic in the way it seems to express: “take it or leave it, this is what I offer.”
