Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore "Balciana" 2019 - Sartarelli
One falls in love with this wine just by looking at it: brilliant in colour to the eye, it is dressed in shimmering gold. Ample on the nose, of ripe fruit, even tropical, with sweet notes of honey, lime as well as spicy and citrus notes, liquorice root and almonds. It is wonderfully harmonious in the drink and with a great alcohol structure mitigated by sapid strength and freshness. What makes it even more unique is its long taste-olfactory persistence with an iodine finish. Simply a persuasive and extremely fascinating wine.
The wine is made from grapes from our vineyard planted in Contrada Balciana. The low production per vine and the different grape harvest times strongly characterise this product of nature. The harvest period varies according to the course of each year, but usually runs from the beginning of November until the middle of the same month. Extreme care in the harvesting phase (small crates), so as not to damage the bunches that have reached this level of ripeness, concludes the work in the vineyard, and then we move on to normal cellar techniques (with the exclusive use of steel tanks), careful not to ruin all the work previously carried out. The complexity of all these processing stages naturally tends to limit the annual production, around 15,000 bottles. In unfavourable vintages, such as 1996, 2002 and 2005, it is not produced. After prolonged ageing in the bottle, the wine acquires taste sensations of incomparable finesse.
