Featured White Wine for July – 2020 Villa Bucci Verdicchio Classico Superiore
Published on July 16, 2022
The Bucci family has been growing grapes in the Marche region of Central Italy, bordering the Adriatic sea, since the 1700s. The current custodian is Ampelio Bucci who has 26 hectares of organically cultivated vineyards focused on the local Verdicchio grape. Verdicchio has been grown in the region for 600 years. The old vines and low yields at Villa Bucci produce wines of great intensity.
The featured Winecroft white wine for July is the 2020 Villa Bucci Verdicchio Classico Superiore. It is the perfect summer aperitif. Deep straw yellow in colour, this wine has a layered bouquet with notes of Golden Delicious apples, almonds and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is complex with a juicy, silky texture and good body. A refreshing mineral edge contrasts with the ripe, round flavours of wildflower and honey.
This wine is on the winelist at Gymkhana, the Michelin starred Indian restaurant in Mayfair, London.

Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.
The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:
Light: You’re normally sensitive to things in general, such as changes in temperatures and loud noises. You are quite choosy with your wine tastes and have a preference for clean, delicate wines
Medium-bodied: You enjoy a wide variety of tastes, quite flexible with your choice of wines and enjoy delicate whites to full flavoured reds
Full-bodied: In life, you tend to be straightforward and decisive You enjoy intense flavours. A big and bold red wine would typically be your choice on the winelist.
Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
