Wine Details

Santa Barbara Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC "Le Vaglie"

“Le Vaglie” was created in 1992, with the twofold intention of diverging from the classic frameworks of traditional Verdicchio while at the same time paying tribute to the winemaking history of the Marche region. The experiment was undoubtedly successful, presenting a wine with the typical almond aromas and flavors that also surprises with complexity and captivating freshness. In 1992, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Le Vaglie, the winery introduced five colorful labels alongside the traditional white label, a stylistic choice that continues today, delighting the wine’s numerous fans.

Santa Barbara Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC "Le Vaglie" 2021

Falstaff Magazine (90)- "The 2021 offers a bright straw-yellow color with a lovely nose of ripe peach, lemon and a touch of apricot. The palate is juicy and well balanced with well-defined fruit. "


Santa Barbara Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC "Le Vaglie" 2021

Vinous Media (90)- "The 2021 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Le Vaglie is quite coy in the glass, as nuances of young peach and pear are complemented by hints of chamomile. It washes across the palate with saline intensity and tart orchard fruits, creating a tense yet also juicy sensation. The 2021 finishes lightly structured with a staining of primary concentration and hints of savory spice. A little more time in bottle should allow the Le Vaglie to come further into focus."
