Wines and People of le Marche: Tenuta di Tavignano, Cingoli | Wines and People | Scoop.it

During the early 90's Beatrice Lucangeli and Stefano Aymerich di Laconi, both belonging to noble families with important historical heritage, traditionally linked to the agricolture of the Marche region, started transforming the estate's business towards quality wine growing and wine production, discarding the existing vineyards and equipment in favour of new ones, perfectly suited to the techniques foreseen by the rules applicable to the 'DOC' (Controlled Denomination of Origin) of the Marche region, that can be used in the provinces of Ancona and Macerata: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Rosso Piceno, Esino, Colli Maceratesi.

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.

Le Marche Wine Tasting: Macerata vineyards

Le Marche Wine Tasting: Macerata vineyards | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Macerata vineyards are an undiscovered joy, producing a wonderful range of unusual and extraordinary wines. Traditional and down-to-earth cantinas (with grandma at the helm) still thrive here alongside innovative and modern wineries. These tours, led by Graham, give you the opportunity to visit these wineries and discover different approaches to winemaking as well as experience a revelation of new flavours and varieties. You will observe the process of winemaking from start to finish by walking through the grounds, vineyards and cellars and discussing with the winemakers themselves. Naturally, you will be able to sample the different wines offered in each cantina alongside local produce such as bread, cheeses, salumi and chocolate. Blind tastings are also possible, as well as an opportunity to learn about the art of blending your own wine. At harvest time (late September) Graham also offers a hands-on 4 day course designed to encourage all wine lovers (regardless of previous wine knowledge and background) to go beyond the simple joy of drinking their favourite varieties and to introduce them to the wonders of actually making and being involved in every aspect of producing the wine. Imagine – making your own wine and having your name on the label of the bottle, served to you by your waiter at your favourite restaurant, or consider the pleasure of pouring your own wine at a dinner party or special event for friends and family! Alongside these events there is a chance for guests to relax and explore the culture and history of the local towns and villages as well as to enjoy the delights of the high quality restaurants of this region.
