2012 Belisario Verdicchio di Matelica L'Anfora

A miniature mustachioed monkey bestowed a beautiful bottle of Belisario upon me.

Not wanting to judge a bottle by it's contour, I pop the cork and dive in....

Clear core with golden peripherals when held against white paper. Nose of citrus zest and baker's yeast. The zippy acid attack begins on entry and carries all the way through the finish. In between, this dry, full-bodied wine exhibits lemon biscuit on the palate with some mineral and quince notes. Maybe some unripe pear mixed in. Slightly bitter, but not unpleasantly so, on the short finish.

This will be a refreshing patio wine for the summer months to come and would probably pair well with spicy Asian foods and soft cheeses.

I am saving most of this bottle and will make it available to the dozen+ wooters who will be at Scott and Jana Harvey's Ohio wine dinner this evening. Will probably be too late for additional tasting notes but maybe it will generate a few sales.

Anyone want the other 3 or 4 bottles?
Tempted, but don't really need all 5.

We could split 3 ways ...

I have a bottle to rat from the gathering you attended. I will try this afternoon with dad and report back. I will let you and Sparky know then if a split is worthwhile

My notes:

Synthetic cork...hate that! Ok, on to the vino (took notes before looking at specs or price)
Color: Clear yellow- tinged with medium legs
Nose: green apple and caramel
Taste: Crisp with nice acidity and a sense of fizz on the tongue, very bright fruit, lemon rind, crisp apple, a touch of RS

Nice white for a warm day. Very crisp and alive. Reminds me of a Torrontes for some reason

Guessing $18 msrp and would buy at $13 delivered on woot

Answered. I'll order. So RJ - 1, Lost - ??, Tytiger - 1, me - 1 or 2


Sorry, out checking up on the Estate Sale at Mom's. Then picked up a surprise Woot/Amazon package.

Got the one Woot order I expected, and a 2nd Woot box / Amazon order (iPhone4 and waterproof case) I didn't.

Anyone want to buy a 16gb unlocked white iPhone4?

So you'll take 1 at $15.

And if the list (including shipping) is $107, then bottle price would be MSRP of $21.

Would be nice if they would stop the large collection offerings. Meaning why 5? Two seems reasonable. If we want more we can buy more. I also noticed that Amazon is selling this, although that was a 2010.

I always presumed that the number of bottles and the pricing is what helps WW keep the shipping costs down. If it were only two bottles at $13 each, the shipping would have to be much higher.
