Verdicchio Balciana Sartarelli 2009 (750ML) IT Flag In Stock - Limited Qty
Verdicchio Balciana Sartarelli 2009 (750ML)
94+ IWC
"Vivid gold-tinged straw-yellow. Knockout nose of honeyed pineapple, mango juice, candied ginger, crushed stone and white pepper. Then rich and subtly sweet--almost fat--with a pliancy and texture more like an Alsatian wine than any Italian white. This round, full-bodied big boy boasts a very long, slowly mounting floral and honeyed finish with vibrant acids that keep it light on its feet. Not quite as opulent as some past Balciana wines (think 2006 or 2007, for example), but absolutely memorable. I really believe this single-vineyard wine is one of Italy's five or six best whites in its better vintages. It also ages well, usually still improving six to eight years after the vintage...94+" IWC 4/13 “Winner, Tre Bicchieri, Gambero Rosso 2012” "Brassy yellow. Sour yellow fruits and a slightly reduced nose with a hint of green herbs. In the mouth, the flavors call to mind white pepper and pears. A brawny, full-bodied Verdicchio with lots of gusto. Good energy on the finish. Pair with poached fish or chicken in a tarragon cream sauce...91" SWJ 01/13 "Beautiful and intense straw yellow color with nuances of golden yellow. Intense on the nose with hints of ripe fruits, tropical and citrus fruits, touches of spice, liquorice root, almonds and honey. It is strong on the palate but at the same time fresh and flavorful with a persistent taste and smell. It is full-bodied with an intense harmoniously balanced flavor, and despite the high alcoholic content, it is extremely agreeable to the palate." Importer's notes
