Boccadigabbia is super fun to say. BOCCah-dee-GABB-ee-ahh trips merrily over the palate, just like this fascinating rare white Ribona. The grape is so particular to the Colli Maceratesi hills that rise just a couple miles from the Adriatic coast that another name for this grape is Maceratino. Why a grape that only grows in one place needs two names is anyone's guess, but it’s a delicious wine with a nose of ripe peach, apricot, and orange fruit accompanied by petrichor (the scent of the air after a fresh rain) and wet stone. The palate offers zesty citrus and juicy peach fruit, a touch of spice, and a breezy, salty note woven in by the nearby Adriatic sea. The winemakers use Cryomaceration to maximize the intense fruit notes, a technique where fresh picked grapes are frozen before pressing to weaken the cell structures in the grapes, so they release significantly more color and flavor. For students of history, the Boccadigabbia estate has a curious place in history, as it was founded in 1808, when the Marche was a French possession during the Napoleanic era. It was run according to French agricultural methods and remained a personal possession of Napoleon’s descendants until 1956, when Mariano Allesandri purchased it from Napoleon's last surviving heir, Luigi Napoleone Bonaparte.
