    Fattoria Nannì "Arsicci" Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi '19

    This past July, I had the immense pleasure of returning for a second visit to Fattoria Nannì.

    Roberto Cantori is a rising star in the world of Italian wine, yet only a few outside of Le Marche know about his wines.

    Located near the town of Apiro in the province of Macerata, he began his production in 2016, making small amounts of Verdicchio from vineyards around the winery. In total he farms just over 6 hectares and makes around 15,000 bottles.

    Roberto is a young winemaker, and although not from a winemaking family, he has incredible respect for the area and its special terroir. When he began his journey to start his own cellar, he had been told of a vineyard farmed by a man whom all the locals thought was crazy. The man was farming his vineyards organically since the 1960's, had planted his vines both north and east facing, basically doing everything outside of the conventional wisdom. Roberto, wanting to farm organically and produce an elegant style of Verdicchio, sought out these vineyards. From these vineyards, Fattoria Nannì was created.

    "Arsicci" is the starting point in the two wine line-up at Nannì. It is produced from some 5 year-old vines, as well as a parcel containing over 50 year-old vines. Like all of Roberto's vineyards, they are farmed organically. From harvest on, everything that Roberto does is to preserve the integrity of the grapes. He hand harvests using small bins to transport to a refrigerator where they are cooled overnight. He uses a pneumatic press, looking for a very soft extraction with the juice going directly to a fermentation tank. He uses a pied de cuve of natural yeast to start fermentation. The wine sits on its fine lees till bottling.

    The 2019 Arsicci is a truly fantastic white wine. Vibrant aromas of lemon, flowers, thyme, and mineral. Very fresh, with bright acidity, yet still with weight on the mid palate, it finishes long and dry. Great to have a glass of as an aperitif, but also works incredible well with shellfish.

    An outstanding white wine value!
