Wine Spectator 91
"A lithe, finely balanced white, weaving a subtle thread of salinity with notes of Gala apple, pineapple, pickled ginger
and pink grapefruit pith. A linear version, fresh and mouthwatering through the lingering, mineral-driven finish.

"Bisci has really impressed me over the course of recent tastings, with a portfolio of higher-elevation Verdicchio that speaks of variety and terroir above all else. Their entry-level 2019 Verdicchio di Matelica is no exception. Honied florals, honeydew melon, crisp yellow apple and hints of citrus set the stage for soothing textures that balance ripeness of fruit against stimulating mineral tones. Theres a sweet-and-sour sensation here that creates further intrigue, as well as lending a drink-me-now persona to the wine. All is in perfect balance here. The fruit hails from the estates hillside vineyards at 300-350 meters, while the wine spends eight months on the lees. -- Eric Guido"

New York Times - Top Value
The Bisci had that seashell minerality, but it was richer, rounder and more herbal More forgiving and flexible, and didnt require food Some readers, in fact, drank older bottles. What a wine! said Reynolds of Manhattan after drinking a 2010 Bisci Senex Riserva, made from Biscis oldest vines and aged for four years in concrete tanks. I could see this improving for another decade.

The Estate
High in the Apennine mountains of the Marche, Bisci is certainly one of the estates where the qualities of Verdicchio di Matelica are most valued. The vineyards were totally replanted starting from the seventies and are located at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea level with southern exposure. The alternation of sunny days and of fresh and dry nights gives the grapes character and an extremely fine fragrance.

Vineyard Practices: Bisci practices organic agriculture, and will be Certified Organic beginning with the 2019 vintage. Integrated insect and disease control is followed. The Marche Region monitors climatic data and informs the growers in regard to the need for disease control. To thwart mold and pests, sulfur and copper-based products are used in the vineyards. For nutritional purposes, vineyard owners use managed cover crops between the rows of vines. The soil is tilled to avoid competition between the roots for nutrients, water and oxygen. When needed, organic fertilizer (manure) is used after the harvest. Low doses of SO2 in the wines help preserve the wines quality.
