San Lorenzo ‘Le Oche’ Verdicchio


Region: Marche (Italy)

Viticulture: Biodynamic

Winemaker: Natalino Crognaletti

Established Date: 1995

100% Verdicchio, vineyard named after the geese (oche) that ‘work the weeds and grass between the rows’ for Natalino. This is an intense style of biodynamically-farmed single vineyard Verdicchio, which derives its complex flavours from vat-ageing and lees contact.

Sommelier’s Recommendation: The perfect wine for the adventurers. Funky on the nose with notes of cooked apple, almond and lees; creamy on the palate with a good acidity.  Love to pair it with earthy and savory dishes, mushroom, asparagus and white meat, but also something creamy. Interesting on its own, but even better with food.

 Fattoria San Lorenzo is a third generation family winery that is completely organic and biodynamic. Enrico Crognaletti was a master cooper who founded the estate, and handed it down to his son Gino, who spent his life filling the vineyards of his estate with the best clones of Verdicchio from around the area. Gino left the estate to Natalino Crognaletti, who’s been running things ever since. Under Natalino’s guidance, the estate has seen its wines imported to all corners of the globe
