Sartarelli Verdicchio Castelli Di Jesi Classico Tralivio 2021

92 Points, Antonio Galloni – Vinous

Vinous called out this wine for how much better it is than their entry-level saying it adds “tremendous depth without a gigantic leap in price” and that’s putting it mildly. It’s a straight-up electric bottle of Verdicchio.

The 2021 ‘Tralio’ is a total knockout. It’s got a beautiful pale straw color that opens up with a mix of jasmine and spring herb aromas followed by peach, apricot and crushed almonds. On the palate, waves of zesty citrus fruit hit you, with a refreshing acidity and a nice mouthfeel that is laser focused and well-balanced. You get a granny apple smith finish with great minerality and length – showcasing one of the more elegant Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio profiles that I can recall in quite some time.

Original price was: $22.00.Current price is: $18.00.

“Crushed rocks, dusty dried flowers, ginger shavings and nectarine create an inviting display as the 2021 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Tralivio blossoms in the glass. This is seamlessly silky and enveloping with ripe orchard fruits and a core of salty minerals guided by zesty acidity. It finishes long and saline in character, leaving a youthful tension that puckers the cheeks as hints of sour lime slowly fade.” -Antonio Galloni

Nestled in the heart of Italy’s Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC region, Sartelli has carved a name for itself as a producer of exceptional white wines. Their fame and beloved status stem from a combination of factors. For one, Tommaso Sartarelli’s work with dozens of vineyards in the Jesi region and multiple terroirs, has built him a strong reputation and he’s considered a champion of heritage and tradition.

Sartelli is renowned for its meticulous winemaking practices and unwavering commitment to using only the finest grapes. They employ a gentle touch throughout the winemaking process, allowing the inherent qualities of the Verdicchio grape to shine through. This results in wines known for their vibrant acidity, minerality, and subtle floral and orchard fruit notes.

In addition to taking him big scores and awards for all of their indigenous bottlings, the family was also paid the highest compliment they could receive, when their Verdicchio was chosen to represent Italy in the Olympics this summer in Paris. It’s the only wine from Marche that was chosen, and only one of 10 white wines that made the cut.
