Marche

Marche

Marche on the Adriatic coast is known mostly for its white wines from Verdicchio, of which there are two subzones, Matelica and Castelli dei Jesi. There has been a quality revival of these two wines in the last two decades, so much so that Verdicchio could now be considered as one of Italy’s best white varieties. The variety has been recently identified as identical to Trebbiano di Soave (not to be confused with the lesser quality Trebbiano Toscano), known for its high acidity and gentle aromatics. As far as reds go, there some interesting wines made in Conero, mostly from Montepulciano, but there is also the rare and very interesting Lacrima di Morro d’Alba, a highly aromatic black variety.
