Buying wine, Italian Style in Le Marche

Buying wine, Italian Style in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

So you go down to your local winery and ask for two white and two red, please nicely (in pigeon Italian) and this nice lady takes you over to the petrol pumps.

She then takes 4 five litre glass bottles, inserts nozzle and starts pump

While this is going on, you watch the numbers whizz round, just like you would do at a petrol station

The bill for 10 litres of delicious white wine? 10 euros and 8 cents.

The First International Competition of Wines for Fish

The First International Competition of Wines for Fish | Wines and People | Scoop.it

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''.

Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2009

Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2009 | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Umani Ronchi is the producer, Casal di Serra is what Umani Ronchi have named this wine, Verdicchio is the variety and Castelli di Jesi is the sub-region that the fruit has come from in Marche. This is a DOC Classico Superiore classified wine which means it comes from a region recognised for growing Verdicchio and is from a historic zone from which the wine has gained fame. Sometimes deciphering a label is half the battle.

Tasting note: Golden in colour, this is a sign of the wine’s development. A nose of honey and lemon. The palate is toasty with a hint of straw there is a touch of pineapple on the back palate but this wine mostly displays lovely savoury tones, rosemary, a soft acid and a mouth feel that is not creamy as such by incredibly full.

Final Say: Want a wine perfect for seafood? Then go out a grab a bottle of this wine. It has those savoury tones that are hard to find anywhere other than in Italian white wines. 

Score: 16.5 out of 20 A damn good drop.

Wines of Le Marche: Discover wines of the “New Tuscany” in a guided tasting

Wines of Le Marche: Discover wines of the “New Tuscany” in a guided tasting | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Ascoli Piceno is the name of a largely undiscovered province within the barely discovered region of Marche in Italy. The province, which the New York Times has branded “The New Tuscany,” turns out three notable wines. Two of them—Falerio and Offida—are named for towns of the province and are fashioned predominantly of Trebbiano Toscano and Passerina grapes respectively. The third wine, called simply rosso, “red,” is a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese.

But tasting, of course, is believing. And on April 17, you will have a chance to do just that when the Picenos Wine Consortium sponsors a guided tasting of the region’s wines, which are currently unavailable in the United States. Dishes meant to complement the wines will be prepared by chef Emilio Pascuallini. James Beard nominated cookbook author Francine Segan will be your host (and translator).

The event will take place at the 92nd Street Y and will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The cost is $40 a person. 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue.

Best Wines of Le Marche: Ciù Ciù Offida Pecorino DOCG Le Merlettaie | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The lace workers of Offida weave together the threads, with precise and quick movement of their fingers. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin… so it is the origin of Pecorino, a noble Italic, austere, harsh and strong grape’s variety, which has been confined for decades onto the bare and steep slopes of the Piceno Apennines. A few wine growers have recently rediscovered this wine thanks to their love and enthusiasm. Pecorino is rare, precious and able to exhale a strong personality recalling ethereal and persistent sensations, year after year. Its personality and strength are harmonically enhanced by fermentation in “noble” wood, a perfect example of the past combined with a new oenological knowledge.

Straw yellow, crystal clear and consistent. The aroma has predominantly floral perfumes of acacia and hawthom:fruits of apple, peach and banana. To the taste it is warm, soft enogh and fresh. Full bodies, averagely persistent, with the end characterized by a floral return

Giuan, La Montata, Mouldy Raisin IGT Marche Bianco

Giuan, La Montata, Mouldy Raisin IGT Marche Bianco | Wines and People | Scoop.it

In the process of raisining, some berries are infected by a gray mould that causes almost total desiccation of the berries, thus attributing quite peculiar sense and sought-after flavours to the wine. The selection of berries is very meticulous and it is not an easy wine to attain, but its bouquet, it s smoothness to the palate, the great balance, its unique taste make of it a great wine for meditation.
Once the grapes are discarded and then pressed their yield is 7-8 litres per 100 kg of freshly picked grapes.
The grapes are strung up in individual bunches and over 4 months in rooms where, from time to time, the fireplace is lit for smoking. Some bunches, or even individual berries are, in specific years and peculiar conditions, infected by Grey Mould. These are selected manually selected and pressed separately with a maximum yield of 10% of the harvest. The outcome is unique nectar that seeps in 110 litre demi-barriques for 36 months before reaching its peak. The unfiltered result is then bottled.
The berries: these are the hand-selected ones, infected with the grey mould.
Annual Production: 300 to 500 500ml bottles
Colour: Deep amber.
Perfume: Intense, complex, yellow fruit, ripe compote, traces of spices.
Flavour: Sweet, pleasantly balanced, constant.
Serving Suggestions: medium-size goblets, 14°C, best after airing.
Goes well with: excellent by itself, dry sweets, fruit jam-tarts, cheese.
