In the sun-kissed hills of Italy’s Marche region, the Verdicchio grape reigns supreme, offering wine enthusiasts a taste of something truly special. This indigenous grape variety possesses unique qualities that make it a standout in the world of Italian wines.

Verdicchio wines are celebrated for their distinctive flavours and aromas, often exhibiting lively acidity complemented by notes of green apple, lemon zest and sometimes a touch of almond. This refreshing profile is enhanced by the underlying minerality derived from the region’s limestone-rich soils, adding depth and complexity to each sip.

Verdicchio is steeped in local tradition and heritage. Cultivated for centuries in the Marche region, this grape variety embodies the essence of Italian winemaking. Wineries like Fazi Battaglia have embraced Verdicchio, showcasing its unique qualities while honouring traditional methods, making Verdicchio wines a beloved choice for those seeking an authentic taste of Italy.

Fazi Battaglia has mastered the art of working with this grape, crafting wines that capture the essence of the region.

Over time, their dedication to quality and innovation led to the establishment of Fazi Battaglia in the early 20th century. Since then, they have become pioneers in promoting Verdicchio wines on the international stage.
