Established in 1973, Zaccagnini is a
family run winery in the small town of Staffolo, producing around
325,000 bottles a year.
For the last 10 years the Zaccagnini Azienda Agricola has been
practicing clone experimentation with native varietals,
fermentation temperature control and micro-biological sterile
bottle filling. Through this important research, combined with hand
selection of the grapes and experience gathered in the field, the
quality of Zaccagnini's wine has achieved spectacular levels.
The Salmàgina vineyards extend for 42 hectares in the
municipality of Staffolo, in Ancona, at around 500 metres above the
sea level. The climate and the soils, (rich of saline) combined
with the work of the Zaccagnini family, allow them to obtain high
quality and distinctive wines. 25ha of vines are classified as
Verdicchio Doc "Classico", whilst 5ha is classified as IGT for
experimental grapes such as Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Chardonnay
and Cabernet. They also farm around 17ha of Olive groves most of
which is organically cultivated.
