The Marche (or Marches) is a region in central Italy’s eastern coast, or in the middle of the back of the “boot” on the Adriatic Sea. The rivers that run through it are the Metauro, Potenza, Tronto and Nera. There are a diverse number of microclimates thanks to the rolling hills off the Adriatic Coast and the Apennines Mountains, the rivers and the lowland areas. This affords wine-makers many choices between cool and warm climate grape growing conditions. 
 
Civilization and wine culture has been in the region since ancient times, starting with the Greeks, through the Etruscans, Romans, Byzantines and Lombards. In the 8th century, the Franks, including Charlemagne, began annexing the Marches to the papacy. This resulted in a heated land dispute between the Vatican and the ruling emperors, who attempted to retain portions of it as “fiefs,” which were controlled by various nobility.

  • Calai 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino dal colore giallo paglierino, fresco e floreale, un pò carente al naso denota comunque profumo di ginestra, fiori bianchi. Al gusto, sapido, di media persistenza e buona acidità, da evidenziare il retrogusto un pò amaro tipico dell'uva Pecorino. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and spicy on the nose with bigs note of spicy flowers and green fennel seeds along with toasty oak competing for ones attention on the inky, slightly peppery and floral laced nose. Big, smooth, and polished in the mouth this is positively exuberant in the way it rushes over the tongue and fills the mouth. The fruit is lovely, easy and not... Read More
