2019 Bisci Verdicchio di Matelica

Le Marche, Italy

From mountain landscapes looking out across the dreamy Adriatic, this steely Italian white from native grape Verdicchio is bright sparky, fresh and mineral.



About The Wine

Verdicchio. Bisci. Le Marche. If you’ve never heard of these, fear not.

Between central Italy’s mountainous backbone and the dreamy Adriatic sea, lies little Le Marche (markay) - a province with food and wine treasures that punch well above its small size. And the Bisci (bee-shee) family make extraordinary white wines from the native local grape Verdicchio (vur-dikee-oh).

Bright sparky, fresh and mineral, there’s flavours of green apple, minted melon and golden straw florals. With surprising texture and depth, try it with angel hair pasta, seared prawns, lemon and chilli.

About Bisci

Mauro Bisci (bee-shee) is today responsible for the family estate, originally purchased by his father Giuseppe and uncle Pierino in 1968. Prior to beginning bottling under their own label in the 80s, all wine was sold to the local cooperative.

His 20 hectares of organically farmed vines are all situated within the Matelica subzone of the tiny Le Marche province, with high elevation and brisk continental climate preserving both freshness and focus.

17 hectares are dedicated to Verdicchio and they are true specialists of the variety. Their steely, mineral wines are intense and long lived, capable of long-term ageing and evolution. Whilst justly famous for their old vine, cellar release Senex and Fogliano bottlings, even their junior Matelica is itself a star, with Italian expert Ian D’Agata rating them amongst the finest white wines in all of Italy.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews


"Bisci has really impressed me over the course of recent tastings, with a portfolio of higher-elevation Verdicchio that speaks of variety and terroir above all else. Their entry-level 2019 Verdicchio di Matelica is no exception. Honied florals, honeydew melon, crisp yellow apple and hints of citrus set the stage for soothing textures that balance ripeness of fruit against stimulating mineral tones. There’s a sweet-and-sour sensation here that creates further intrigue, as well as lending a drink-me-now persona to the wine. All is in perfect balance here." - Eric Guido (

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
