Winemaker's Notes:

The Verdicchio Classico Superiore Tralivio is lively and vibrant in color. It has a light and inviting aroma and a well-balanced flavor, it's a wine in evolution.

"A bold, chewy white, this is filled with luscious pineapple and kumquat flavor even as it's completely dry. The smoky hazelnut tones tighten around the fruit but don't diminish its fragrance. Bottle age will only add to its complexity."- Wine & Spirits

My Notes:

About Azienda Agricola Sartarelli:

This 9 hectares Estate is located 300 metres above the sea level at Coste del Molino in the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico DOC area. The vineyards are planted exclusively to Verdicchio.

They have clay soils and southern exposures, features which are responsible for the main characteristichs of Sartarelli wines: intense fruit aromas, richness and body on the palate.
