Sartarelli, Balciana, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2007
One of Italy’s three or four greatest white wines. Alsatian in style, opulent and thick, with a hint of residual sugar. Unfortunately, the 2009 vintage has been made in a less memorable, more linear, dry style. My hope is that Sartarelli will revert back to the
previous style. 18.5pts/20 (95/100pts)
