The 2016 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Podium from Garofoli is just starting to show a bit of mellowing on the nose, opening to notes of ripe yellow apple, sweet florals, almond paste and stone dust. It soothes with silky textures, ushering in flavors of white peach, laced with salty minerals and a twang of green citrus. There’s so much density, giving way to a savory spiciness that lingers in the mouth along with hints of hazelnut. The 2016 has many years to go before reaching full maturity, but it can be enjoyed now on its potential alone. (Eric Guido, Vinous, September)

My dad absolutely loved this verdicchio, but I think the fish and scallops had something to do with it. Very good verdicchio that goes seamlessly with seafood.

2020/4 with various Adriatic coast seafood dishes. Much rounder than the ColleStefano, with a pronounced almond note. I wonder how much is due to the extra 2 years from vintage, the terroir, winemaking, etc (though both seem to be modern, stainless steel-raised white wines).
