93 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2007 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Balciana is made in an opulent, late-harvest style that nevertheless captures plenty of varietal character, albeit in a rich, sensual style. Super-ripe peaches, flowers, sweet herbs, orange peel, crushed rocks and minerals are just some of the notes this superb wine hits. This is truly a remarkable, first-class white that readers will not want to miss. Although the wine is drinking beautifully today, I have little doubt it has plenty of stuffing to age gracefully for at least several years. This is one of the finest whites I tasted this year from Italy. Simply put, it is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017. These whites from Sartarelli were among the most thrilling, complete wines I tasted this year. The two entry-level Verdicchios also happen to be two of the best values in Italy for whites that offer noble class and pedigree at what are very fair prices."
About the Winery:
"A very rare estate in Italy that devotes itself completely to just one grape, Verdicchio. Patrizio and Daniela, and their children Tommaso and Caterina have raised Verdicchio wine making to an art form, and nobody produces as many successful wines from the grape as they do. The Verdicchio Balciana is especially grand, undoubtedly one of Italyâs twenty best white wines: made from a late harvested grapes grown in a beautiful amphitheater, this single vineyard wine is only made in the best years (for example, none was made in 2002 or 2005) [...] Wine lovers should also try the Tralivio Verdicchio, which has improved by leaps and bounds over the last five years and is now one of the best Verdicchio wines made anywhere." - New Releases from the Marche: Something for Everyone (Jul 2015) by Ian D'Agata, VinousMedia.com
Located in the heart of the Marche on the west side of the Esino river, Sartarelli encompasses 66 hectares of vines located 300-350 feet above sea level. With an average vine age of 33 years and soils that are characterized by calcareous and marl stone, owners Donatella Sartarelli and her husband Patrizio Chiacchiarini are producing wines that are very terrior driven and classic to the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC.
Donatella and Patrizio firmly believe that the wine is made in the vineyard. To this end they are practicing substainable farming, only using pesticides when absolutely necessary and allowing grasses to grow in order to replenish nutrients into the soil. During harvest, which usually occurs between mid-September and mid-October, they make multiple passes through the vineyards, taking only the fruit that is at its optimum ripeness.
All of the grapes are soft pressed, with fermentation for the Classico and Tralivio being done in stainless steel and the Balciana and Passeto in cement. No oak is used at all, allowing for the purity of the fruit to come through. The end result are artisanal wines that are clean, soft, and layered with complexity. - Distributor's Notes
