Wine Tour Le Marche: around Senigallia

Wine Tour Le Marche: around Senigallia | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Marche wines are not so known outside Italy and foreigners always remain surprised when, visiting this wonderful region, they discover the high quality and the wide range of products of the local wine makers. Going by cantine is always a good solution to get in touch with local people and to enjoy the countryside landscape, since they are always far away from the main cities, rounded by wineyards as far as the eye can see. In Marches this is even more true, since you have to get lost on secondary roads in the greenery of the Marchisan hills to reach some of the places we are going to suggest you...

Wines Le Marche: Azienda Agricola Colleluce Vernaccia di Serrapetrona | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Vernaccia of Serrapetrona is a natural red sparking wine that it can be obtained by 85% of the autochthonous vineyards Vernaccia and 15% of Sangiovese, Montepulciano or Ciliegiolo.
The best grapes are kept and dried in special rooms, the rest, instead, is pressed at the moment of the grape harvest and it is put in steel tanks for the first fermentation.
After 2 month also the dried grapes are pressed for the second fermentation. The two parts, that are not completely fermented, are finally positioned in autoclave to allow the third fermentation.

Fattoria Serra San Martino Serra De' Conti Le Marche

Fattoria Serra San Martino Serra De' Conti Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Fattoria Serra San Martino lies in the heart of the Le Marche region, about 20 kms from the Adriatic coast in the hills of the Ancona hinterland.
Kirsten and Thomas Weydemann, both passionate for red wine, italian culture and style of life, have researched and found the perfect place for a vineyard project.
Nowadays the vineyards are located on the slopes facing the south and west, at an altitude of 220m above sea level. Set half way between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine Mountains, they are aerated by cool winds even during the hot summer months. The surface of the soil is characterized by clay and lime. Lower levels are predominantly sand and shell limestone.
As a consequence of the unique micro climate and the radical reduction of the harvest a superior quality of grape is guaranteed...

Le Marche Wine Excellence: Marotti Campi Morro d'Alba

Le Marche Wine Excellence: Marotti Campi Morro d'Alba | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Morro D’Alba is a medieval village situated between the towns of Jesi and Senigallia. Here, on gently rolling hills framed by both the Appenine Mountains and the Adriatic sea, lies Sant’Amico, a settlement which dates back to Roman Times.
The winery Marotti Campi was built in 1999 and is represented by Giovanni and Francesca with their son Lorenzo and they are proud to vinify exclusively their grapes. The capacity is 6000 and they use pneumatic press where the hand-picked grapes are softly crushed. For the white wines they use reductive techniques to preserve the vibrant, fresh varietal grape character, we use dry ice during the harvest and azote in the winery to lower the grapes temperature and lessen the oxidation of the flavours. Marotti Campi stores the bottles in a temperature controlled environment at 10-18°C providing optimal ageing conditions. In 2010 we have installed solar panels achieving energy self-sufficiency
The estate totals 120 hectares, of which 52 are vineyards that lie on hillsides at approximately 180 meters above the sea level. The soil is mixed predominantly clay...

Poggio Montali and the Esino Bianco Doc in Le Marche

Poggio Montali and the Esino Bianco Doc in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The production area of the Esino Bianco white wine is most of the province of Ancona and a large area of Macerata.

A very slight straw colour with greenish reflections.

A characteristic intense nose and a fresh dry taste very similar to verdicchio given that a minimum of 50% verdicchio grape is used in it's production. The rest is made up of white grapes of the production zone authorised by the D.O.C. authorities - normally Trebbiano and/or Malvasia. Minimum alcohol content 10.5%. A sparkling (frizzante) version is also produced, minimum alcohol content 9.5%.
Served at a temperature between 9° and 12°, accompanies most 1st courses, white meats and due to it's lower alcohol grading does not overpower the most delicate fish dishes, molluscs and crustaceans.
