2018 Rosso Conero "Castro di San Silvestro" (Marchetti)

Marchetti, Rosso Conero "Castro di San Silvestro", Marche, Italy 2018

90% Montepulciano, 10% Sangiovese

PLUM & CASSIS, CHESTNUT & CHOCOLATE, DENSE & DARK

A bit of a bruiser (albeit an impressively elegant one) this mostly-Montpulciano from Marchetti is one of the most potent examples of eastern Central Italy’s hometown hero we’ve encountered. Concentrated black fruit with balancing brightness and structure is supported by judicious but substantial Slavonian oak, bolstering an impression of roundness and generosity. While not to be slept on by fans of classic Italian fare, there’s arguably as much appeal here for lovers of modern Bordeaux or Californian Cab and Merlot.

Serving Suggestion: Braised boar shank w/ clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, & plum gastrique. Lasagna w/ mushrooms & bechamel. Miso-roasted cremini, chestnut, & portobello mushroom salad on watercress.

2019 Verdicchio "Tenuta del Cavaliere" (Marchetti)

Marchetti, Verdicchio "Tenuta del Cavaliere", Marche, Italy 2019

100% Verdicchio

BRIGHT, TANGY LEMON AND CRYSTALLINE ACIDITY

Imagine picking a smooth dark stone from a fast-flowing river. Hold the wet stone to your nose and inhale deeply; it's a sharp, clean, yet earthy smell, one famously reproduced by the best Verdicchio wines. Maurizio Marchetti harvests his grapes slightly on the late side, which in this case adds intensity and concentration to the wonderful waves of rocky acidity. There's also plenty of tangy citrus, a hint of starfruit, and glorious natural petillance.

Serving Suggestions: Baccalà in a spicy olive and pepper tapinade. Frisee with walnuts, prociutto, and chevre croquettes.
