Villa Medoro

The glamorous Federica Moricone runs Villa Medoro, a 92 hectare estate within sight of the Adriatic that sold its grapes on until the late 1990s when it started to make wine itself. Pairing indigenous varieties with modern winemaking the wines are very appealing but with some serious complexity too; the Montepulciano was awarded ‘Tre Bicchieri’ in the Gambero Rosso, a real feat for a wine of this pricepoint. The whites are just as interesting: the 100% Trebbiano is as spicy and floral as we have come across with this variety, while the Chimera takes some of this Trebbiano from the finest vines and barrel ages it on its lees – one of the most delightful whites on our whole list.
