2011 Sartarelli Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

SKU #1130990 91 points James Suckling

 I like the nose. Lovely, lively and fruity with mineral, apples and pears. Full and tangy with bright, crisp acidity.  (2/ 2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The entry-level 2011 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico is a wonderfully focused, precise white. Crushed rocks, smoke, pear and lemon are all layered into the vibrant perfumed finish. A crisp, refreshing finish rounds things out nicely. Drinking well doesnít have to cost a ton of money, a point the 2011 Verdicchio makes with great eloquence. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. When the mood strikes for Verdicchio, Sartarelli is often one of my go-to houses. The wines are loaded with varietal character, while the different bottlings are usually nicely differentiated and articulated.  (2/ 2013)

Nice texture, a bit creamy, and surprisingly layered. A perfectly good wine at a great price.

I love Verdicchio and this Sartarelli Verdicchio is a real pleasure to drink. Just over 10 miles from the Adriatic Sea, Sartarelliís vineyards produce wines that have intriguing aromatics of elder flower and pear, while on the palate hints of richness cover layers refreshing acidity with suggestions of a mineral finish. Perfectly balance this Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio is the perfect pairing for appetizers, sautéed fish or just relaxing by the pool!
Drink from 2013 to 2016

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
