Flavors of Le Marche

Today we speak about Verdicchio: “the more red of white wines”

Verdicchio is arguably Italy’s greatest native white grape variety. Grown in the hillsides of north-central and western Le Marche, Verdicchio is used to produce a variety of wines, from metodo classico to passito and, in between, some of the longest-lived dry whites found in Italy. The characteristics of these wine is quite varied, thanks to a series of factors including soil, climate and elevation. You can taste with fish, vegetables, but also meat and especially with Fabriano’s Salame DOP (another excellence of our area): this the reason why is named “the more red of white wines”.

There are two DOC zones for Verdicchio in Marche: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, the more famous of the two, and Verdicchio di Matelica. Sassoferrato is situated in the middle: the third valley close to the Apennines, near the border with Umbria.

In its 2015 Italian wine guide, Gambero Rosso awarded its highest rating of 3 Bicchieri (3 Glasses) to 11 examples of Verdicchio – more than any other white in the country.

Flavors of Le Marche

Today we speak about the Montepulciano Marche: red wine, tending to black 

The vine Montepulciano has quite uncertain origin, is often confused with the Sangiovese, probably because of the Tuscan appellation ” Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG “. Today it is certain that the two grapes have nothing in common. It is grown mainly in Le Marche and other regions of central and southern Italy. Its origin is almost certainly Abruzzo , where his older origins show, in particular the province of Pescara, although some of the greatest oenological expressions reported to Le Marche, in particular the Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno. Sangiovese and Montepulciano still represent the best tradition of neological production the Centre Italy as regards red wines.
