Enzo Mecella, Marche

Dry and minerally as only the best Verdicchio’s from Le Marche can be. A penetrating Quartz, and Cobalt character, very focussed and very pure, but with an underlying toasted almond richness and yeasty character from prolonged lees maturation reminiscent of top Muscadet).

The Enzo Mecella estate

Enzo Mecella sources his grapes from conscientous growers in Matellica, from where the best and most minerally Verdicchio comes, 'perhaps Italy's most characterful white grape', opines Belfrage. The reds come mainly from Monte Conero, a region forming a promontory into the Adriatic producing one the most important (qualitively if not quantitively) Montepulciano-based wines. Gambero Rosso says he offers 'austere wines which age with aplomb' and whilst the fruit can be astringent when young it softens after a few years ageing to offer a spicy complexity that is present on the nose earlier. We are currently offering the extremely good 1998 vintage for your consideration.
