From the vineyard to the table
Fazi Battaglia is an historical winery from the Marche region, founded in 1949 in the Castelli di Jesi Classico Area, located 50 kilometres southwest of Italy’s Adriatic naval capital, Ancona. Francesco Angelini, one of Italy’s most successful entrepreneurs, took over himself the winery shortly after, and his skills as a multifaceted entrepreneur, coupled with a passion for the countryside and the continuous search for high quality, led him to plant the first Verdicchio estate vineyards and brought Fazi Battaglia to become the leading winery of the region. Today Fazi Battaglia’s estate has increased to include 280 hectares under vine among the Marche region’s most spectacular landscape dived in 12 different single vineyards and supervised by the chief agronomist Mirco Pompili. The cellar is guided by the wine maker Dino Porfiri and is located in Castelplanio. It is a perfect combination of the typical traditional methods and the most modern and innovating techniques.
Since 1990, founder’s grand daughther, Maria Luisa Sparaco, together with the 4th family generation Luca, Barbara and Chiara Giannotti, manage the winery and launched an important experimental phase concerning the growing and wine-making techniques of Verdicchio and Sangiovese vines, helped by the important staff of technicians in Fazi Battaglia and in collaboration with the leading industry figures, universities, and independent consultants.
Fazi Battaglia has a vast and important collection of products that includes principally a range of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Superiore and Riserva and an assortment of Rosso Conero and Sangiovese.

In the late 1800s the phylloxera epidemic destroyed most of the vineyards in Europe. An inmense crisis took place and the whole future of wine was questioned by the plague. The use of resistant American rootstock was the solution found to guard against Phylloxera… this implies that in one plant 2 elements co-exist, the rootstock (resitant to phylloxera) and the visible part.
