Silvano Strologo: quality wines of Le Marche

Silvano Strologo: quality wines of Le Marche | Wines and People |

This small family-run farming company was created by a group of farmers, who decided to start cultivating vines in the 1960s.

A particular microclimate influenced by the sun-drenched hills and vicinity to the sea, make cultivation of vines particularly favourable. The ground in the zone of Conero is calcareous (chalky), residing on a base of clay and it is well adapted to cultivation of vines.

Try the Marche Rosato IGT "Rosa Rosae" made with Montepulciano and Sangiovese...

The First International Competition of Wines for Fish

The First International Competition of Wines for Fish | Wines and People |

Ancona, Riviera del Conero, May 09th-11th 2012

Although this may appear to be the first edition, the International Competition of Wines for Fish is just an evolution of ''Selezione Vini da Pesce'' which celebrated its 12th edition in 2011 but which was actually created in the 1960s. The competition was conceived around the two themes which, even today, render the competition unique: the intrinsic link between wine and the sea.
The Riviera del Conero acts as a meeting point between them:if wine is able to express a land, the sea is able to hold many stories.
The numbers of samples has progressively increased over the years with a representation from across the Italian peninsular. In 2011, 600 wines took part in the cmpetition, with wines from every Italian region.
Across the different subsections of the two categories ''still wines'' and ''sparkling wines'', the wines will be evaluated using the method of the Union Internationale des Oenologues.
A diploma award will be given to all wines which gain at least 80pts. From these, for each category, gold, silver and bronze awards will be given to the wines with the highest scores. The winery which gains the highest points overall will be awarded the ''Calice Dorico''.
