The Marche region has 20 D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. wines to drink paired with local dishes.
Wine producers from Le Marche inherited a tradition in vineyards growing from the previous generations and combined this precious know-how with modern technology.
Thanks to climate conditions, every area of the region has its particular grapes and its special type of wine.
Let’s discover all these wine excellences.
D.O.C.G. WINES FROM LE MARCHE
The D.O.C.G. is unique and not reproducible in other places because of the features of the geographic area they come from.
Among white wines, we have two kinds of Verdicchio: one is produced in Jesi area, the other one in Matelica area. Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio riserva is a white wine that can evolve itself according to the complex maturation of its aromatic elements; Verdicchio di Matelica riserva has a great personality and it’s defined “a white wine that seems a red one”.
In the area between Ascoli Piceno and Fermo, a land that enhances the features of native vineyards, it’s produced Offida Pecorino, a category that includes Red, Pecorino and Passerina.
Conero Riserva, a wine with a great structure that only uses Montepulciano grapes, is produced in the Conero area; grapes harvest is postponed compared with the DOC, to get the perfect amount of sugar in each grape.
Finally Vernaccia of Serrapetrona, the only one D.O.C.G. sparkling red wine of Italy, the result of an XV century process that consists of three fermentations.
