This aged wine has the same grape composition as the non-aged Verdicchio di Matelica DOC, namely Verdicchio (85-100%) with the permitted addition of other local green grapes, usually Trebbiano Toscano and/or Malvasia Toscana (0-15%).

Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva DOCG is less well-known as its "sister wine" Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Riserva DOCG, nervertheless, many grant it as a wine with more depth of flavor, staying power and full-bodied structure as well as a wine with a cleaner and deeper taste.

Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva DOCG has a straw yellow color, with clear green reflections. The taste is dry, harmonious, slightly acidic, with a slightly bitter aftertaste and a mineral, cool, fruity aroma. The aftertaste often has hints of wood from barrel-aging.

The mandatory aging period for this white wine is 2 years, starting on December 1st of the harvesting year.

A dessert wine, Verdicchio di Matelica Passito DOC, and a sparkling Verdicchio di Matelica Spumante DOC, both on the same grape composition, is also avaliable.
