When you meet Leopardo Felici of Andrea Felici, you can tell instantly he?s got the pedigree from having worked in some of the best restaurants in the world. But when he talks of Le Marche and his vineyards in Apiro, you can sense his genuine love for being a vigneron. Indeed, since his father Andrea put him in charge of the estate 9 years ago, Leo?s focus has not been on marketing but rather converting the estate to organic farming to create the purest wine possible. Today Andrea Felici?s wines are considered the pinnacle expression of Verdicchio, with the tension between fruit and minerality found in the world?s great white wines.?
This opens with a heady floral fragrance of hawthorne and Spanish broom, with a whiff of stone fruit. It has delicious flavors of creamy peach, lemon and mineral alongside Verdicchio's unique salinity. Peter/Warren Selections, Augustan Wine Imports.
