LCBO Find: Fontevecchia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2022

Today's LCBO find takes us to one of my favourite areas for white wine, Le Marche, Italy.


Verdicchio from Le Marche has a pronounced mineral, zesty, yet fruity profile with a textured mouthfeel that makes for an incredible wine on its own or with food.


Today's featured wine, Fontevecchia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2022, by CasalFarneto, is an excellent example of what this grape can provide out of Le Marche.

High Level Le Marche and Verdicchio

While Le Marche produces red wines and other white wines, the star variety of the area is Verdicchio. The best known areas for Verdicchio in Le Marche are Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica. Though the same grape is grown in both DOCGs, the aromatics and flavours have nuances unique to the terroir of each area. It makes a side-by-side tasting of Verdicchio from both Jesi and Matelica a fascinating study.

The Fontevecchia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2022 is made by CasalFarneto, a production house big on maintaining tradition but exploring new technology and know-how. The winery was founded in 1995 and has expanded production over the years to 60 acres of land under vine, where 28 acres of that is dedicated to, you guessed it, Verdicchio.

To us, wine must represent the “terroir” and its culture. Each bottle expresses land, tradition, culture and work.

The Fontevecchia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2022 has aromatics that remind you of white flowers, specifically the scent of mock orange flowers, coupled with peach and pear. On the palate, expressive minerality and acidity provide the building blocks of structure. The palate is then balanced by lime, peach, pear, honey, and a nutty sensation.

This is such an incredible sipper and one you must try.


The Fontevecchia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2022 can be found at the LCBO vintages for $16.95.
