Mar 8 2017, 14:43 | by Gambero Rosso

A white notable for good savory notes that enliven the palate: Lauro Riserva, a Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Classico, is perfect for seafood and delicate meats. Here are a few more details about the wine and its pairings.

The wine

The large photos showing scenes of country life in the 1960s might seem to clash with the architecture of the modern winery, but they effectively sum up the estate philosophy: a successful blend of inherited skills and state-of-the-art knowledge. Giordano Mattioli looks after the vineyards, comprising three crus with distinct features. His brother Giacomo is busy with fermentation and ageing of the wines. The grapes for Lauro, the family's Riserva, come from the Mogliette vineyard.

Tasting notes

The 2013 version has a well-defined profile moving towards a light blend of citrus and almonds with clear aniseed aromas identifying the terroir. The palate is vivid, subtle and dynamic, its stylish pace leaving a persistent salty sensation in the finish. A white notable for good savory notes that enliven the palate. Versatile in its pairing possibilities, it would go well with mussels au gratin, fettuccine and seafood or with grilled shrimp. Ideal also with dishes that feature chicken or turkey.
