Winemaker Notes

Of an intense straw yellow color with greenish nuances. A fine, elegant nose with notes of white fruits and citrus develops into a subtle mineral aroma. It has a rich alcohol zing and flavor but with its well balanced acidity it becomes soft on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sartarelli’s 2010 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Tralivio opens with a blast of juicy, yellow stone fruits and flowers, but then the minerality kicks in on the mid-palate and finish. Unctuous, textured and beautiful, this 2010 impresses for its exceptional balance and finesse. I loved it. Mint, flowers and citrus reappear on the intense, saline-drenched finish. Tasting the 2010 made me crave a good plate (or two!) of crudo. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

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.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular, complex and age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

Verdicchio

View all wine

One of central Italy’s classic white grapes, Verdicchio thrives in the Marche region; its best versions come from two distinct appellations. Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, to the west of Ancona, is only 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea and the smaller, Verdicchio di Matelica, is inland and at a higher elevation. Castelli di Jesi is Marche’s largest DOC but its best wines come from its hillside vineyards. The best Verdicchio boast fresh citrus fruit with a mineral lift, a sturdy finish and can age for a decade. Recent genetic discoveries have proven that the Verdicchio grape is identical to Trebbiano di Soave, Trebbiano di Lugana and Trebbiano Veltenesi.
