Review: Garofoli 2015 Podium and 2017 Macrina


Garofoli is the oldest family-owned winery in the Marche region of Italy, where it’s been producing wines since 1871. Today we look at its best-known wine — verdicchio — in two expressions (and from two different vintages).

2015 Garofoli Podium Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore DOC – 100% single vineyard verdicchio, all stainless. Sharp on the tongue and a bit sour at times, this wine is loaded with lemon/lime notes, edged with an herbal character that recalls rosemary and a hint of anise. Very tart finish. B+ / $25

2017 Garofoli Macrina Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore DOC – The everyday version of the above wine, a blend of various vineyards, but still 100% verdicchio. Heavy on citrus — orange and apricot — but loaded with acidity, it’s got an earthiness underneath the fruit that recalls forest floor and a bit of the anise found in Podium. B+ / $14
