Ever heard of Vernaccia Rossa di Pergola? I hadn’t, until meeting Claudio Morelli of the Marche, who proudly showed my his 100% pure bottling. The wine is bright, super aromatic and exceedingly rare. It had a nose redolent of drying carnations, cherry blossoms and Italian plums. I was transfixed by the aromatics- kind of like an explosion in slow motion. On the palate the wine was clean, full of bright strawberry flavors and exceedingly delicious.
Who would have known?
Vernaccia Rossa di Pergola. I am a fan.
