Le Marche Wines in Pennsylvania: Colli Ripani Pharus Offida Ninfa Ripana Passerina DOC (2010)

Le Marche Wines in Pennsylvania: Colli Ripani Pharus Offida Ninfa Ripana Passerina DOC (2010) | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Le Marche is a great region for value right now – these wines do not have name cache and thus are generally very nicely priced. The only issue, of course, is that they are somewhat hard to find. Hopefully, however, I’ll have some Rosso Piceno or Conero to share with you sometime soon. For now, however, it’s Passerina!

Giuliano Berloni - Olive Liquor of Le Marche

Giuliano Berloni - Olive Liquor of Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Together with his family, Berloni has "reinvented" the olive-liquor, reworking old recipes and after historical and organografical researches. This liquor is extracted by the infusion of olive-leaves and olive-cortex into alcohol, with added sugar and only natural aromas through a traditional process lasting several months

The result is an olive-liquor with digestive virtues, amber colour, sweat balsamic flavour, slightly bitter background and a proof of 30 mills.

Silvano Strologo: quality wines of Le Marche

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

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...

La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica 2009 and the area of production in Le Marche

La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica 2009 and the area of production in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

A golden yellow in the glass with distinctive green hues. On the nose this wine gives out a tremendous waft of aromatic beauty with citrus, anise, honeysuckle and green under-ripe walnuts. Striking acidity and a luscious mouth-feel gives this wine a rich, opulent tone with sour citrus notes continuing to the mid palate. The finish is generous but very bitter, so much so as to shock the unexpecting.

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Italy

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Italy | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Verdicchio used to be a bone-dry fish-dish white, but the new confidence in Italian white winemaking is demonstrating what an excellent grape Verdicchio is – ripe golden yellow fruit almost like baked apples and peaches, kept fresh with the nip of apple peel and a sprig of mint and Adriatic dill.

Organic Wines Le Marche: Clara Marcelli, Castorano

Organic Wines Le Marche: Clara Marcelli, Castorano | Wines and People | Scoop.it

These organic wines reach real highs on all score boards. The pecorino is golden coloured, full bodied, fragrant. The Piceno superiore (70% Montepulciano, 30% Sangiovese) deep and fruity, but the exceptional ‘K’un’ (100% Montepulciano) with 30 months in oak and tasting of black fruit, spice and chocolate is the best.
It’s well worth a visit though because only few Piceno wines are available in the UK or US but surely more should be arrive in the future.
