Mirum from La Monacesca is a Riserva level Verdicchio which means the winery has to adhear to strict ageing requirements. Only grapes with intense aromas and great concentration are used in making Mirum, which is why the vines are 30 years old on average! The extreme ripeness of the grapes results in aromas of toasted almonds, acavia honey, lemon verbena and tinned fruit. The palate is rich and expansive but beautifully balanced. Try pairng with young cheeses or even veal tartare.

The 2018 Verdicchio di Matelica Mirum Riserva is youthfully poised and takes some time to open up in the glass. With coaxing, a pretty display forms, showing dusty white flowers, smoke, hints of almond, lemon and lime zests. It’s a deeply textural wine, silky yet not weighty, and decidedly spicy in character, flaunting its salty minerality and vibrant acids, while balancing the expression with ripe orchard fruits. Tension remains high through the structured finale, with notes of ginger-laced apple, orange and just a hint of vanilla bean. This is a gorgeous Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva, and it’s packed full of potential.
