    About the region
    Marche
     

    Verdicchio. Formerly for the troops - today for the holidaymakers.

    170 kilometers of Adriatic beach. Behind it is a fertile hilly country with almost 18,000 hectares of vineyards. The region is located in the center of the country, bordered by Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Abruzzo. The Celts and the Etruscans cultivated wine here as well as the Romans, of course. Allegedly the Visigoth king Alarich strengthened his troops with Verdicchio during the attack on Rome. Today the well-known dry white wine is not only very popular with tourists.

    Tourism played an important role in the success of Marche wines.

    At present, about 17,500 hectares are planted with vines in the Marches. The main white varieties are Verdicchio, Pecorino, Trebbiano Toscano, Biancame - also called Bianchello, Grechetto, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Malvasia and Chardonnay. The red varieties are dominated by Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Lacrima di Morro and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, a variety of Grenache. In recent years, some producers have experimented very successfully with yield-reduced individual vineyards, selected grapes and barriques. Great wines were the result. These plants prove that the often despised Montepulciano grape produces results similar to those of Sangiovese when lovingly treated.

    The Marche region produces about half red and half white wines. Total production amounts to around 98 million litres per year. More than a third of the wine is produced in 5 DOCG and 15 DOC zones. Brands account for less than two percent of total Italian wine production.

    The most famous wine is the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC. A small part of the approximately 3,000 hectares of Verdicchio achieved DOCG status and has been labelled as Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio Riserva DOCG since 2011. Both zones cover the parishes around the town of Jesi, about 25 kilometres from Ancona inland. The Verdicchio di Matelica is being built in slightly higher areas - on the slopes of the Apennines - with its own DOC on a mini area of just over 200 hectares. Vernacchia grapes are used to produce excellent sparkling wines according to the traditional method of bottle fermentation - Metodo Classico.

    Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno - the velvet softens.

    The best red wine of the Marches is probably the Rosso Conero, which is produced in the direct surroundings of Ancona mainly from the red Montepulciano grape with Sangiovese. The wine is velvety, soft and fruity. The majority of Sangiovese grapes are used to make Rosso Piceno, which can be produced in almost the entire area to the west and south of Ancona. North of the port there are the vineyards of the DOC Colli Pesaesi, where Sangiovese is produced into a lighter red wine with a little Pinot Nero. The light, sparkling white wine Bianchello del Metauro also comes from the same area. It is pressed from the local biancame grape.

    The DOC Lacrima di Morro is produced in the north, between Ancona and the Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi area. It is a very fragrant red wine made from the local Lacrima grape. In recent years the Ascoli Piceno region has been on the upswing, not least due to the quality offensive of the active president of the Consortium, Angela Velenosi.

    The white wines from the autochthonous grape variety Pecorino, which come mainly from the Colli Maceratesi DOC and the Falerio dei Colli Ascolani DOC, are also becoming increasingly popular. SUPERIORE.DE
