There's a pretty and pleasant sweetness to the 2020 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico that keeps you coming back to the glass, as nuances of almond and vanilla bean give way to white flowers and freshly sliced pear. It's soft-textured, almost creamy in feel, with a captivating mix of minerals and lime motivated by brilliant acidity. This leaves the palate reverberating with mouthwatering tension, and it leaves you thirsty for another salty sip. It's amazing to think that this is the entry-level Verdicchio from Sartarelli. Well done.
