Marche, from “Mark” which in German means border, the distance from the center of imperial power favored the birth of municipal autonomies which later, between ‘300 and’ 400, generated the constitution of states and autonomous areas ruled by families in perennial struggle. These historical events explain the spread of fortresses and castles in the region, able to leave their visitors speechless for the incredible landscape, artistic and architectural heritage they reserve and for the history they bear witness to. We could offer you a journey to discover the most authentic Marche: a land that excites and allows you to live an experience made of a thousand shades, appreciable in their purity and genuineness. Co-protagonists of this trip will be the wines and wineries of our region. The strong and fussy character of the inhabitants could not fail to give the wine of the Marche characteristics on a par with better known names and its land, an indisputable vocation. From the Malatesta to the Montefeltro passing through the Lordship of the Sforza. From Verdicchio to Passerina to Pecorino. Analogies, stories and curiosities of a territory to discover … and to taste
Slow Wine rather rich for Le Marche in 2019: for the first time in fact Slow Wine assigns three special prizes to the winemakers present in the guide and two are from the Marche
Alessandro Fenino receives the award for sustainable viticulture. The organic and biodynamic farming of Cantina Pievalta in Maiolati Spontini (An) in the Marche region, practiced without exaggerated ideologies, has allowed to obtain wines with a strong personality respecting the varietal identity of the grapes.
Ampelio Bucci, instead, of the company Villa Bucci of Ostra Vetere (An) has made the history of high quality Verdicchio, creating wines that can challenge the passing of time.
Le Marche is the heart of white truffle season, which means one thing: it’s time to program a tuber hunting.
Ancient Romans believed that the truffle was created when lightning struck damp earth.
We know that the small tuber grows underground in the wild forests of northern and central Italy.
In Le Marche we maintain the magic of the truffle, referring to the earthy and aromatic ingredient as “a diamond of the kitchen,” or “the gem of poor lands.”
Truffles cannot be planted or tamed, so each variety is only available a few months out of the year. These fragrant fungi taste best fresh, so plan to enjoy white truffles from September to December, winter black truffles from December to early March and summer black from May to August.
The best friend of truffle is a good wine: I prefer Rosso Piceno, a full-bodied red wine from Le Marche; other friends prefer Verdicchio, the most red of Italian white wines.
Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato (August 25, 1609 – August 8, 1685), also known as Giovanni Battista Salvi, was an Italian painter, known for his commitment to Raphael's style and for his Madonnas. He is often referred to only by the town of his birthplace (#Sassoferrato), as was customary in his time, and for example seen with da Vinci and Caravaggio.
He was born in our village Sassoferrato, in the Marche region of central Italy, half-way between Rome and Florence, east of Apennines. Frequently, he represented our landscape in his paintings: our mountains, our hills, our valley and our castle.
There are over three hundred works by Sassoferrato in public collections throughout the world, including almost all of his extant drawings in the British Royal Collection at Windsor Castle. In Paris' Louvre you can find a Museum room dedicated to Salvi's paintings.
Some Salvi's works are still in Sassoferrato Museum or Churchs. You could also find in Jesi or Perugia, 40min by car from our villa.
