Jasci & Marchesani Histonium Riesling 2022


Yes, Italy does produce a bit of Riesling, and judging by this one, they do it really well as it turns out. This is pristine and dry, showing those pure fruited, varietal notes of green apple and lime. There’s a quenching, chalky finish here to boot. The winemaking is pretty straight forward. Organic fruit from the coastal south of the Marche is hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel, retaining those vibrant Riesling aromatics. 

The family behind this estate have been growing things as market gardeners for yonks, and in more recent history have focused on organically tending vines and fruit trees. Jasci & Marchesani are a husband and wife team who have been dedicated to organic farming since the 1960s. Their children and children’s partners are now involved, and all are committed to the production of these excellent value wines grown in the Marche on Italy’s east coast.
