The internet site www.getawayguru.com.au between all the outdoor delights, food and wine highlights and medieval villages, Le Marche has to offer gives 9 reasons to visit this wonderful Region in 2015 and I, personally, add my 10th:
Some say Dionisio Cimarelli is Italy’s finest living sculptor. Some people say he’s the greatest Italian sculptor in China.
Trouble is, he’s in neither country. He’s right here in California, visiting and working in studios from Monterey to Los Angeles.
Born in the Italian region of Le Marche, he started studying art when he was 14. But he was the type of boy to fly way. Instead of getting a driver’s license at 18, he obtained his first passport. A life of travel, study, and the practice of sculpture followed him through Europe to Saudi Arabia to China and now here. [...]
With her round, chubby face, shy smile and soft fleshy hands that were never idle, my Nonna Sestili preceded in appearance the Pillsbury Doughboy.
She dressed simply, with hair pinned at the nape of her neck. Her black, mannish-looking shoes made her look flat-footed, and an apron was ever present over her cotton print dresses.
She was born Teresa Pacifico in the Le Marche Region of central Italy, which enjoys mild, sunny weather, abundant olive trees, sheep, cow-milk cheeses and rich, wide noodle pastas. The Marchigiani, as the locals are called, are hard-working, kind and orderly people. [...]
We walked around 1.5 kilometer 700 meters under the surface admiring stalagmites and stalactites 25 meters high. The artificial lights are giving all a great vision. Maybe 1.4 million years ago sulphuric water gouged niches and caves into the limestone. The whole cave has a music of dripping, beautiful little lakes with crystal clear water, profound 25 meters.

Rachel Abbott and her husband John bought the 15th Century monastery in Le Marche, Italy, for only £150,000 in 2000. But a two-year restoration project set them back a further £1 million.

It is available in the book shops the seventh edition of the publication "Le Marche nel Bicchiere 2015," the guide - realized by the Associazione Sommelier Marche (Le Marche Sommelier Association) with the Regional support. Year after year, this guide has reached its prestige among similar specialized publications. The already wide range of information and updates about the wine scenery of the Marche region, extremely rich and varied in terms of food and wine, has been enriched in the 2015 edition by a section of mono-variety extra virgin olive oil, the gold of Le Marche and an attentive english translation. This publication can be used for a personal discovery of the wineries of the territory.
They contain a brief description of the firms, the tasting report on their two selected wines and a mention of the other wines produced.
They have been carried out blindly by the AIS Marche Tasting Panel, coordinated by the tireless Giannetto Pergolotti, following the methodology and the wine testing card used by the ltalian Association of Sommeliers. it provides an assessment of each wine together with a final score expressed in points out of 100. The panel give a specific organoleptic analysis for each tasted wine and suggest a dish to be combined with.
There is also an indication concerning: type, grapes, alcohol content and an indicative sale price for each wine, which is declared by the producers themselves.
The 50 excellences
The Woodpecker’ is the symbol of the
Marche Region, which testifies the great bond with the territory, it means excellence. That’s why that symbol has been assigned to the wines that have achieved the maximum score and which have also particularly impressed the Tasting Panel for their qualitative aspect.
An interesting parameter for the consumer is the positive price/quality ratio, which is indicated in the guidebook with the symbol of a piggybank. This ratio is calculated using a specific algorithm that takes into account the price of the wine declared by the producer and the qualitative assessment resulting from the professional tastings. The data obtained are further parameterized to the overall quality of the analyzed samples, making the result an actual mirror of the importance of the regional production.
Almost all texts of this guidebook have an English translation in order to make it useful to a larger number of users.
