The Producer

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 and develop become standard bearers for the Marche.


Since 1995 Natalino has made the family estate his.  He’s a big personality whose wines express his spirit for experimentation. His labels express his love for animals. His enthusiasm is the stuff of legend.


All the vineyards are organically and biodynamically farmed, and are certified organic for wine and olive oil production. All farming is done by hand to best preserve the soil, vines and the larger environment.


Natalino maintains his vineyards so that they will not only be hospitable to grapes, but also to the many animals that live with him on the estate. Rabbits and geese inhabit the vineyard and help manage the rows. Peas are planted to lend nitrogen to the soils. The vineyards are like a nature reserve.



The Wine


100% Verdicchio from biodynamically farmed slopes in this almost impossibly beautiful region of Italy. Named after the geese that roam the vineyards keeping pests at bay and intruders on their toes!


The wine is made from a special selection of grapes, with a soft pressing to use only the purest and freshest juice.  After fermentation it’s left to mature for 12 months in concrete vats on its lees to add a mineral complexity, before being allowed to rest for 6 months in bottle before release.


The wine is a beautiful straw yellow colour, with fruity and floral aromas of pear, acacia flower, elderflower, lime, and that glorious eastern Italian white wine signature of almonds. The acidity means this super refreshing white can stand up to plenty of dishes, whilst also being a perfect aperitivo wine.
