“Where there is no wine there is no love.”
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.
The Wineries and Wines awarded

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.
So, what are you waiting to come to visit ??? 😉
