Cantina Saputi, Colmurano | Wines and People |

Cantina Saputi is a family run business and was started in the sixties with a strong focus on the rural traditions of Le Marche.

Alvaro, the present owner, helped by his sons Leonardo and Andrea, has made Saputi’s name well known nationally and internationally in the eno-gastronomic field.
 The philosophy of casa vinicola Saputi sits well in the context of Colmurano, by combining tradition, innovation, new technology, experience and knowledge.

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers and gourmets from the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, a first DOCG of the Region, to the Pecorino or Passerina, rediscovered wines that recently hit the headlines. Also the Rosso Conero and Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG wines, two great reds native to the vineyards of just seven municipalities in the Le Marche province of Ancona. The Le Marche where all these wines are found have mountains and hills gently sloping down to the coast, a great terroir, essential for the growth of great wines. In 2012, Le Marche produced 920,000 hl (10.2 million cases) of wine. There are 16 DOC and 5 DOCG wines, these spread throughout the Marche region, thus confirming the high level of quality reached by this wonderful regions wine production. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
