Wines from the Marche: serious matter

Wines from the Marche: serious matter | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Wine is a serious matter in the Marche. There are roughly 14,200 estates in the region, working with about 17,000 hectares of vines. Although cooperatives do exist, wine production is very much a family affair. Roughly 80% of the Marche’s wines are DOC or DOCG, a fact that does not guarantee quality in and of itself (individual producer skill is important) but illustrates the region’s potential. In fact, the region is blessed with many high-quality native grape varieties and unique terroirs. Even better, the average level of quality is quite high, which means that finding a truly bad wine is difficult. A handful of overoaked and rustic reds are still being made, but for the most part the Marche’s wines deserve to be on shopping lists of wine lovers everywhere. [...]

Gambero Rosso - Preview Tre Bicchieri 2014 Marche

Gambero Rosso - Preview Tre Bicchieri 2014 Marche | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Marche: 18 awarded wines and, above all, the Verdicchio that, between the Castelli di Jesi and Matelica, scores a strike, with so many different interpretations and an average level very remarkable.
The extraordinary interpretations of Verdicchio, these grapes so eclectic, have given us, this year, wines with fresh and sharp interpretations more subtle and refined than ever, with sober elegance and intense aroma. The Pecorino confirmed what expressed in 2013 among whites and so the reds with excellent performances, continuity and some new entries. To remark the dessert wines, especially obtained from dried grapes of Lacrima of Morro d' Alba and Verdicchio.
1 of 5 producers were not in the Guide 2013, great sign dynamicity.

Le Senate - Marche's best - kept secret!

Le Senate  -  Marche's best - kept secret! | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Pamela Brizzola is co-owner of Le Senate winery with husband Giulio Visi. Pamela takes the time to chat with us about the successful winery, which is located in the enchanting Marche region of east Italy. A dream of the couple was to produce fine wine which paid homage to the full-bodied, long finish which is characteristic of wines from France’s Bordeaux region – and  Le Senate certainly succeeded in this ambition. Read on to hear of the intriguing history behind the winery’s name, the charms of the Marche region, and the different wines which they produce from their superb terroir. Le Senate will be presenting their wines this year in Arezzo at our Buyer Meets Italian Cellar Workshop in the first week of November. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, October 16, 2013 7:31 AM

If you visit Le Marche, you’ll have the chance to experience Le Senate and their unique wines. Bordeaux-style wines, made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The unique terroir in the hilly area of Altidona very close to the Adriatic sea shore has turned out to be perfect for cultivating these wines.
