There are also about 100 vineyards or Vigna, which may also be mentioned

The leading winery Fazi-Battaglia introduced in 1950 the significant green amphora with the scroll on the neck, which (along with fishing nets) became an indispensable part of the Italian restaurant inventory and made the wine famous outside Italy (today it is bottled in this form only as a tourist attraction). The green-yellow wine is made from at least 85% Verdicchio(Verdicchio Bianco), a maximum of 15% can be other approved varieties. There is also a Spumante, Passito, Classico and Classico Superiore

The Riserva version was classified as DOCG in 2010 under the new designation Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva (or Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva Classico). There is a much smaller Verdicchio DOC zone in the Marche region called Verdicchio di Matelica.
