Tasting Notes
"Crushed stone and smoky minerals set the stage, giving way to crisp green apple, sage and raw almonds. Verdicchio di Matelica blossoms in the glass. This is silky in feel, contrasted by citrus-tinged orchard fruits and brilliant acidity. More savory than sweet, and packed full of zesty energy, it finishes long with an almost-umami sensation. As is usually the case, Bisci once again overdelivers with their entry-level Verdicchio di Matelica.

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 2020 Bisci Senex Riserva, made from Biscis oldest vines and aged for four years in concrete tanks. I could see this improving for another decade.

Elevation: 300-350 meters above sea level
Calcareous clay soils with southern exposure
Fermentation in glazed cement vats

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.

Farming Practice: Certified Organic
