“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

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.
