The “Scacchi”
Method

Francesco Scacchi "Healthy Drinking"

In 1622 the Fabrianese doctor wrote a book about the history of oenology in our area.
Thanks to this precious volume and a great amount of experimentation, we have recreated the original method of making the sparkling wine that enhances the fragrance and intensity of the aroma and we have called it the Scacchi Method, in honour of the doctor from Fabriano.

Recover Fabriano vines

Our company is engaged in the preservation of ancient vines and traditional cultivation methods of the Fabrianese, in particular in the vineyards we have the white Petrignone, the “grossa” Vernaccia nera, the Moscato “bastardo” and the Dolcigno or Vespaiolo vines.

Petrignone

Cited by botanists specialising in vines at the end of the 19th century, it was documented in the Fabrianese area in 1925 by Prof. Giuseppe Vivarelli. The vines that we cultivate were found in the Coccore area by taking the buds from old vines present in our area.

Vernaccia Nera grossa

A red grape variety subject to which cure to care and nurture in cultivation has recovered to be registered in the national catalogue thanks to a project of the Agricultural Institute “G. Vivarelli ”by Fabriano. The cultivated vines come from the Coccore area from gems taken from old vines present in our vineyards.

Dolcigno o Vesprino

This is a species whose recovery is still ongoing: its presence was first documented in the Fabriano area in 1925 by Prof. Vivarelli head of the Agricultural Technical Institute. The vines being used for recovery come from old vines present in our Coccore farm.

Moscato Bastardo

This vine, often used in blends together with others, was documented in the Fabrianese area in 1925 by Prof. Vivarelli. The DNA was found to be related to the Moscato di Terracina, a grape variety grown in Lazio, probably imported into the Fabrianese area at the end of the 19th century.
