Complex and layered on the nose, this white has it all: from bright aromas of lemon curd and green apple, to haunting floral notes, to deep and complex hints of honeycomb, fresh bread, and toasted almonds. We'd recommend you allow this to warm up a bit in the glass to reveal its nuanced aromatics.
Textured and rich on the palate, while simultaneously light and elegant, this dry white is balanced and complex. The finish is dry and incredibly long, with a refreshing, citrus-tinged acidity.
Complex enough for poultry, so save this for your next turkey dinner or pair with chicken pot pie or roasted vegetable flatbread.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
All of you home-bakers out there will recognize this smell the next time you use marzipan.
Sweet, sticky, creamy goodness buzzing with underlying floral and earthy notes.
That yeasty, slightly sour aroma that embodies the promise of freshly baked bread.

This is probably the most serious Verdicchio we've had the pleasure of tasting at WineCollective, so we couldn't wait to share it with members the moment it arrived in Canada! Verdicchio has a documented history in the region of Marche, in central Italy, that dates back to at least the 14th Century. Though it's thought to originate in Veneto in the north (where it's called Trebbiano), Verdicchio's long-established reputation in Marche make it the region's signature white grape.
La Monacesca take Verdicchio's importance very seriously, specializing primarily in three expressions of the grape. Their Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva D.O.C.G. Riserva 'Mirum' is sourced from a small, 3 hectare vineyard with an average vine age of 30 years. Grapes are carefully hand-harvested after extended hang-time, and gently pressed before being fermented in stainless steel. Long aging on fine lees adds texture and depth while the wine undergoes malolactic conversion. While delicious now, this complex white could easily age gracefully for another ten years. Enjoy at about 10 C.
