Italy, Marche

La Monacesca winery was established in 1966, not coincidentally just a year before Verdicchio receieved DOC status.  They released their first Verdicchio in 1973 and have been a leader in the region from their inception.  The wines are vibrant and focused from release and have a history of age worthiness considered uncommon to the grape.  These are truly among the finest white wines produced in Italy.
