A lovely word, 'Clochard'. It means 'vagrant' in French and this sumptuous white is so named because La Calcinara's verdicchio vines lie outside the Verdicchio Castelli DOC boundary, making it an outcast, a vagabond among wines, wandering free in the land of great reds but nonetheless a verdicchio 'sotto lo stesso cielo' - under the same sky, as Paolo describes it. Rich and floral with lovely hints of jasmine and creamy almond. There's a delicious richness but its kept in shape by a brisk minerality and a lemony acidity which ultimately make each sip refreshing. A food-loving white that will also age handsomely.

Press Note:

Clochard 2017 is a blend of Verdicchio (90%) and Chardonnay. It’s a textured, salty wine with a wonderful fruit salad hit, a bright, golden hue and a stylish long finish. The Buyer by Chris Wilson - Il Colletivo 2019
