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 is a charming character, his passion and dedication to quality drives him to harvest his grapes on several cycles to ensure every bunch is picked at the moment of optimum maturation, which then takes place in Slovenian oak barrels.

    Tasting Notes:

    Marche region is renowned for its great Verdicchio. Maurizio Marchetti is one of it's finest producers, maintaining the family tradition through the generations. Low yield, manual harvest and gentle press, "flower press", is the base for Verdicchio.

    The bouquet is full of citrus and mineral notes, the crispness and striking acidity make it extremely refreshing.

    It is a refined wine which would suit perfectly seafood, oysters, fish or pasta dishes.

    Tasting Notes:

    Late-harvested, "Tenuta del Cavaliere" is an outstanding and stunning medium-dry wine. So confident about the quality of his Verdicchio grapes, Maurizio created this micro-production.

    Full-bodied, it develops a great body. The aromatic complexity, pear, melon, star fruit and honey, is a concentration delight. Welcome to Maurizio’s world of excellence.

    Serve it with Baccala (salt cod with spicy olive and pepper tapenade, salad of walnuts, prosciutto and cheese) and it's ideal with fish and shellfish.

    Tasting Notes:

    Marche was traditionally a red wine region, based on the Montepulciano grape. Maurizio Marchetti puts the same passion into his Conero wines as he does with his wonderful Verdicchio’s.

    This smooth Rosso Conero has a lovely fruity flavour alongside a great acidity. Every single drop of minerality is squeezed from the soil to get into the bottle!

    Will complement pork, meat pasta or fish with red wine sauce.

    Italian speciality Filleto di Maiale alle Mele (pork tenderloins with caramelized apples and raisins)

    Tasting Notes:

    Very generous in style and character, Villa Bonomi is a fine example of Marche red wine production, which is becoming Italy's fast emerging wine region. His ageing of over 12 months in Slovenian barrels gives it that extra edge.

    The complexity of aromas ranges from wild berries, dark chocolate and white pepper.

    Try it alongside Lamb, duck and mature cheese.
