Marche is a beautiful wine region, with miles of untamed coastline, picturesque fishing ports, rustic mountain villages, a natural charm that culminates in the splendid peaks of Monti Sibillini.
Coined “the New Tuscany”, the Marche wine region is one of Italy’s last "untouched" wine regions, sandwiched between the Apennine Mountain and the Adriatic Sea, a must for gourmet travellers.
Historically, the region is best known for its Verdicchio, a white wine which is making a distinct impression; crisp, refreshing wine, layered with delicious complexity. Many connoisseurs believe Marche is capable of producing impressively structured, quality-driven wines, including the reds, Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno, from the Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes.
The Rosso Conero is particularly appreciated. The limestone-rich soil of places like the Mount Conero, combined with the dry maritime climate, contribute to the Montepulciano grapes that produce wines with such characteristic flavour.
Maurizio Marchetti inherited his passion of wines from his father Mario, who created the current winery after a failed experimentation of silkworm farming back at the end of the 19th century. The vineyard lies on the outskirts of Ancona, a single vineyard of 21 hectares facing south and to the Adriatic coast.
