Verdicchio di Matelica, 100% organic Verdicchio – Bisci (75cl) DOC Marche
Appellation: Verdicchio di Matelica

expanded to twenty-five hectares, twenty of which are under vine, all of
which are within the Verdicchio di Matelica DOC. The focus on quality
is the guiding principle – perhaps the greatest testament to this is the
fact that by the time Bisci release their Verdicchio, most of the DOC’s
production will have already been consumed.
Vineyard: The twenty-five-year-old vineyards are planted on south facing slopes at
an altitude of 300-350 metres, on calcarous-clay soils. The grapes were
harvested by hand at the end of September, with strict bunch selection

Winery: After gentle crushing, the juice from the first pressing was fermented
using selected yeasts in temperature controlled cement vats. The wine

months in bottle before release.

bitter note on the finish. Textured and rich, but with an appealing
