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.

  • Fazi Battaglia Verdicchio Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Always dependable and wonderfully marketed, this highly quaffable Italian white is always hard to resist in its beautiful amphora-shaped bottle - even with the over-the-top scroll hanging off the neck. The nose is of bitter almonds and poplar sap with a hint of pear and apple. Light yellow in color, this wine has a slight spritz and more bitte... Read More

  • Mario and Giorgio Brunori Verdicchio Dei Castelli di Jesi Classico "Le Gemme" 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This was a deliciously aromatic and medium bodied glass of wine. Too bad it was at the end of my evening, otherwise I would have had another glass. Had shrimp romano, a great pairing. Read More

  • Robbione -Serrapetrona NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is honestly the best wine I've ever tasted. A sommelier suggested it when I asked for something full-bodied, not too sweet, but not too dry. It was perfect. I've been looking for it everywhere and plan to buy a case as soon as I can find one available! Read More

  • Luigi Giusti Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2006

    Snoothrank:

    What a weird little one. Nearly effervescent on the pour, so very tightly wound, with a touch of fizzy lifting fruit on the first sip. Opening up, calms down a bit so that a dark blackberry surfaces, but still a bit Jekyll and Hyde-ish. Read More

  • Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Giusti 2006

    Snoothrank:

    nose of rose petals and violets, a taste of dark cherries and plums, rich and concentrated. One of the more rich and full lacrima s that I have had. Interesting. Read More
