La Staffa’s Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi is grown organically (in the process to get certification). Stefano is a young and talented winemaker and his Verdicchio is a bright and aromatic white:  “pale straw; distinctly aromatic (almond, citrus, green apple, herbal notes on both nose and palate); medium weight, fresh acidity; long finish” .
