Massaccio is Cupramontana’s historic name, the town which the beautiful vineyards used to make this Verdicchio Classico Superiore look out onto. This is the richest and most concentrated version of Verdicchio, the outcome of years of experimentation. The richest and most concentrated version of Verdicchio. The grapes can also be left to partially raisin for a few days in its vineyards, in the highest and most south facing areas. This produces a riper and softer Verdicchio. Massaccio is suffused with ripe fruit, particularly golden delicious apples and pears with notes of honey, fruit and nuts, aniseed and Mediterranean herbs. When attacked by precious noble rots, hydrocarbon notes emerge with ageing.


Fazi Battaglia was set up in 1949 when two families – Fazi and Battaglia – joined forces in a small wine estate in the town of Cupramontana, but it was the Angelini family just a few years later which made the company into a historic Italian wine making brand. And all this thanks to courage and an intuition which can be summed up in two fundamental and decidedly innovative choices for the era: investing strongly in vineyard improvment (in an era in which quality considerations were still a very long way from being central to Italian winemaking) and, at the same time, a strong belief in a single vine, Verdicchio. Two choices which were ahead of their time and made Fazi Battaglia a standard bearer for the promotion of production areas like the Marche region and one of the great native Italian vines.
