In our never-ending search for combos no one on earth has tried
before, fish tacos and Verdicchio. Betsy had said she was stopping at
fishmonger, so I put a bottle of the 2007 Colle Stefano Verdicchio di
Matelica in the fridge. When she told me it was tacos (cod, with salsa
verde, guacamole, tomato salsa, cheese, and lettuce), I had my doubts.
But too lazy to redo wine. Actually, it was fine. The Verdicchio is a
very pretty wine ($13). Good body, clean bright acidity, a bit of a
saline note. Lots of lemon with some canteloupe/honeydew, some mineral
notes with a touch of almond on finish. Very good summertime wine,
getting more. Did fine with the tacos, was even better with straight
fish was a bit of the tomatillo sauce on top. B+
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
