The Zaccagnini Winery is run by two brothers in the lesser known region of Marche on the East Coast of Italy opposite Tuscany.
The brothers have played to their strengths and focused on the local grape Verdicchio, and the results are fantastic. Their range of three Verdicchios are as distinctive and individual as you could wish for. Each wine has its own personality and textural signature. Whilst they have been working organically for a few years; it is official from the 2020 vintage that the wines are certified as organic.
The Salmàgina vineyards extend for 42 hectares in the municipality of Staffolo, in Ancona, at around 500 metres above the sea level. The climate and the soils, (rich of saline) combined with the work of the Zaccagnini family, allowed to obtain high quality and distinctive wines. 25ha are classified as Verdicchio Doc “Classico”, whilst 5ha is classified as IGT for experimental grapes such as Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Chardonnay and Cabernet. They also farm around 17ha of Olive groves most of which is organically cultivated.
Manual harvest with several tries, soft pressing of the whole bunches and a long temperature controlled fermentation.
Verdicchio is a white-wine grape variety that has been cultivated for hundreds of years in the Marche region of central Italy.
It is a versatile variety, used both for light, easy-drinking table wines, and for more complex, ageworthy examples.
It is commonly lauded by critics as being one of Italy’s best white-wine grape varieties, and is found in vineyards across the country.
