Milletta

(Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva DOCG Classico)

The Milletta wine comes from the vineyard where, in the late nineties, we carried out the first selection of our best vines. This vineyard is located in an area with a strong symbolic and historical value for the Sartarelli family because this is the place where Milletta was born and grew up. Milletta was the nickname for Matilde, wife of Ferruccio Sartarelli, who was the founder of the Sartarelli winery. This wine is the result of a strict selection of the best grape-bunches, which are subjected to cryomaceration for at least 24 hours, and represents the winery’s hard work and experience. It has a long refining period of at least 10-12 months in stainless steel tanks and of at least 8-10 months in bottle.

This wine has an excellent aging potential and a high longevity.

 

Its production is limited to around 5.000 bottles a year.

 

Milletta is available in (copyrighted) Sartarelli bottles of 750 ml and in borgognotta magnum bottles of 1,5 liter with an elegant gift box.

Some tips on how to combine Milletta with food, but please never forget to follow your own tastes and preferences!

This wine is a perfect match for smoked salmon. It works well with grilled red meats, grilled fish, perhaps served with light mushrooms, and can be enjoyed with spicey dishes, too. It is an elegant accompaniment for medium-mature cheeses and important cheeses such as the typical Fossa cheese.

Sensorial characteristics:

Lively and intense straw yellow color.

It has great expressiveness with flint notes, hints of hawthorn, almonds, rose and apricot, but it presents also creamy and toasted notes.

On the palate, it is intense, enveloping and very balanced, covering the alcoholic note. Its finish remains delicate but with a distinctive, lingering after-taste and scent of bitter almond which is a characteristic of this varietal.
