FAZI BATTAGLIA

Marche, Italy

Fazi Battaglia was established in 1949 in the small town of Cupramontana located within the enchanting Le Marche region of Italy. In 1953 a design competition was announced – they were looking for a bottle that harked back to the ancients, but with a unique shape. The winery created the unmistakable amphora-shaped bottle. This unique design not only became an iconic symbol of the winery but also became synonymous with a little-known grape variety, making it instantly recognizable worldwide.

That grape variety was Verdicchio.

For over 70 years, Fazi Battaglia has focused on Verdicchio, or more specifically the Castelli di Jesi hills that give this white grape its sense of time and place. Verdicchio is a very distinct product of its region and its roots have been traced back to the 14th century in Marche. Sometimes known as “the white Barolo”, Verdicchio has naturally high acidity, making it refreshing to drink, but also an easy wine to cellar.

Delightfully refreshing on its own, Verdicchio is also exceptionally food-friendly, especially with anything green, acidic or fried, thanks to its characteristic high acid.

‘Titulus’ is Fazi Battaglia’s benchmark cuvée—a dry, aromatic Verdicchio. Hand-picked in the vineyard and softly pressed in the cellar, this gauzy, luminescent white has a slight green tinge, characteristic of Verdicchios—the root of the word is, unsurprisingly, verde, meaning green. After a cold ferment in stainless-steel tanks to emphasize the fresh fruit flavours, the wine is aged on its lees (or yeasts) for four more months for additional body and texture. On the palate, you’ll encounter notes of crisp green apple, Meyer lemon, ruby grapefruit, fennel frond and white almond with bright, mouth-watering acid, a glistening minerality and a distinct saltiness reminiscent of the Adriatic. Titulus reveals added depth in its delicately nutty finish, akin to fresh hazelnuts or macadamias.
