This vintage not yet rated by Vinous, but this is the 94-point Vinous review on 2012 (a quite similar vintage here, though 2018 is regarded as even better):

Pale straw-green. Knockout aromas of quince, pear, white peach and white flowers are complicated by lemony minerality on the vibrant, captivating nose. Rich and broad on entry, then explosive in the middle palate, saturating the mouth with bright, lively floral and fresh citrus flavors that are intensified by penetrating acidity. Finishes extremely long and creamy-rich, expanding to coat the palate and teeth with lingering white peach and floral flavors. The bright acidity conveys an almost weightless mouthfeel to this seamless, rich, extremely concentrated wine. You can tell that owner Fabio Marchionni studied white wine in Germany. This is but one of many outstanding vintages for this wine. Let me be clear: I think it is probably Italy's single greatest white wine buy.

And this 2018 looks to be even better! As one Verdicchio grower (Andrea Felice) commented: "2018 was one of the most beautiful years since 2006."

Decanter Magazine says:

Italy’s best-buy wine of all time? Unbelievable quality for the price. Mineral zestiness, almond flowers, green apple and chlorophyll notes you won’t forget. 

Sheer brilliance. Surely the most haunting $18 dry white wine you can buy.
