Verdicchio equally perfect for highbrow and lowbrowSee on Scoop.it - Wines and People
Soured on Sauvignon? Miffed at Moscato? Maybe that’s God’s way of telling you to try something different. Seriously, how much Pinot Grigio can one woman drink? The world is wide and it would be a pity to die without having tasted more of it, n’est pas? Verdicchio is a grape indigenous (probably — in genetic history certainty is rare) of the Marche region of Italy, a coastal province that once was an agricultural province a bit northeast of Rome. Near as anyone can tell, it is yet another descendent of the Greco varietals imported from Greece eons ago. It shares a common genealogy with the Trebbiano grape, a wine largely ignored by Those of Us Who Know, darling. […]

Giovanna Garzoni from Ascoli Piceno, the unusual artist of the baroque eraSee on Scoop.it - Le Marche another Italy
Giovanna Garzoni was one of the few woman artists who was, in her time, a successful painter of miniatures. She especially developed the genre of still life, but also ventured into portraiture and religious themes. Born in Ascoli Piceno, Marche, Italy in 1600, not being the daughter of a painter as used to happen with the women who came to engage in this activity; however, her parents Giacomo Garzoni and Isabetta Gaia came from families of artisans. Her talent was discovered when she was apprenticed to a pharmacist in her city. A letter written by her in 1620 reveals that she was trained in painting by Giacomo Rogni. […]
Giovanna Garzoni (1600–1670) was an Italian painter of the Baroque era. She was unusual for Italian artists of the time for two reasons: first, in that her themes were mainly decorative and luscious still-lifes of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and second, because she was a woman.

Verdicchio Can Age. #truthSee on Scoop.it - Wines and People
For example, this Verdicchio di Matelica from classic producer, Bisci, is gorgeous with 10 years of bottle age. The steeliness of youth found in some Verdicchio di Matelica wines is fleshed out by the long, slow, micro-oxidation of the wine through its cork. A wine that might have been overtly bright and cheerful in its youth become more brooding- complex, aromatic, and oilier on the palate.
For the record the pairing of this Verdicchio with savory, slow-grilled peaches and yogurt with basil and a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar was just about the most perfect food-and-wine pairing I can remember.[…]
Verdicchio Can. Not every Italian white wine can age. However you will find greatness more often than not, especially with the combination of the right grape varietal, vinified by an experienced producer.
