Fazi Battaglia’s success stems from quality vineyards along with a commitment to experimentation and continuous improvement under the guidance of quality oriented consulting winemaker, Lorenzo Landi. The winery conducted a meticulous parcel study of its 12 single vineyards, followed by rigorous selection, which paved the way for new, high quality vineyard plantings. Since its inception, Fazi Battaglia has been committed to the native Verdicchio varietal.
Location of Vineyard
The Fazi Battaglia vineyard estate is located in the town of Castelplanio, in the Castelli di Jesi Classico area in the Le Marche region of central Italy. It sits just 31 miles southwest of the Adriatic Sea and 50 miles southwest of the capital city of Ancona. In 1949, Francesco Angelini, a multifaceted entrepreneur with a passion for the countryside and a vision for quality, boldly planted the first estate-grown Verdicchio in the Marche region and named it Fazi Battaglia. Since 1990, the estate has been managed by the 4th generations of the Sparaco and Giannotti families.
Fazi Battaglia strongly believes and supports environmental sustainability and quality viticulture. They do this through adhering to strict regulations, Magis protocol, and precision farming which means doing only what is needed, where and when it is needed. As a result, in early 2014, the winery was recognized and awarded the ECO-FRIENDLY winery by Vini Buoni d”Italia for supporting the environment and sustainability in the Vineyards and in the Cellars.
The estate is comprised of 12 single vineyards managed by Mirco Pompili, while Simone Schiaffino and consulting winemaker, Lorenzo Landi, make the wine. With this dynamic team, Fazi Battaglia has reached global recognition setting the benchmark for Marche wine production. Every parcel of vineyard land has been studied to determine the ideal varietal and clone to plant for fruit of the highest quality.
