Le Marche: castles and wines


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

AN EVERIDAY EMOTION … BETWEEN MARCHE AND UMBRIA N°8

“Where there is no wine there is no love.”

Our 2022 new friends Jarka and Hendrik

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.

Sunny days … gorgeous Region: Le Marche, Italy

Truffles time in Le Marche

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.

Italian recipe … simply clever, simply Italy

PANZANELLA by Triglia di Bosco (our friend Chef Roberto Dormicchi)

Griddle the slices of bread on both sides. Wash the tomatoes very well and cut them into cubes …

Add the red onion cut into julienne, the garlic with the core removed and the basil leaves, thorn by hand !!!

Season with vinegar, extra virgin oil, salt and pepper. Then rest for ten minutes in the fridge.

Arrange the hot slices of bread on a serving dish, cover them with seasoned tomatoes … and serve !!!
