Offida Rosso Red Blend 2018

From the new Offida DOCG, which I conceptualize as the southern Marche’s answer to Conero. Minimum of 85% Montepulciano, though I don’t know this one’s precise composition. I am a little nervous about the stated 15% alc, but it’s very good. Saturated color, nose has that aggressively loamy, gravelly earthiness I associate with good Marche Montepulciano, notes of rosemary and juniper, deep dark wild cherry fruit. It’s full and lusty in the mouth, with nice, soft tannins and good balance. Great purity of dark fruit, and none of the chocolaty-ness I feared it might have. (That fear was based only on the general trend of Marche winemakers toward overripeness and over-extraction in their higher-end wines, not anything I knew about this one.) — 15 days ago

Pistillo Offida Pecorino 2013

Incredibly complex. Wow… Where to even begin? Quite fragrant: waxed golden apple, green pear, pepper, and lots of lemon rind. The lemon and wax continue when drunk, but the apple turns to pear with intense acid, cream and vanilla and a touch of honey. This wine has no idea what it wants to be, and that makes it fun as hell. — 8 months ago

Offida Pecorino

You might guess this was a light malo Chardonnay - bright and fruity, but just enough silkiness to pay attention to. Excellent QPR. — 6 months ago
