Le Senate - Marche's best - kept secret!

Le Senate  -  Marche's best - kept secret! | Wines and People |

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 insight:

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.
