Marche

(Italy)

Tied to the verdicchio, a vine that has brought the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi to a great reputation even beyond the border. This wine, produced in the most classic of combinations with the products of the sea, is changing its image and faces the enological scene with a new sensorial identity, more structured, elegant and enriched in aromas, especially in the Riserva version. In the Marche region there is also the interesting Verdicchio di Matelica produced in the Alta Valle Camerina.
In 2009 the production of Marche wines was about 782,000 hl, with a predominance of white wines.
On the scene dominated for decades by Verdicchio, other protagonists are being introduced, above all red grapes, such as Montepulciano and Sangiovese, vine-varieties for the production of the Conero DOCG, considered the best red wine of the region, and Rosso Piceno Superiore respectively.
Another red wine that stands out for its quality is the Pinot Noir of the Focara sub-area of ​​the Pesli Hills, obtained from an unusual vine at these latitudes.
A gem is the Lacrima di Morro d'Alba DOC, red wine produced in a patch of land in the province of Ancona, elaborated by the homonymous vine also as a passito.
Another wine that deserves to be remembered because it is the only one of its kind is the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona DOCG, an amber or sweet red sparkling wine, obtained mainly from the homonymous vine, whose bunches are partly dried and followed by an autoclave sparkling process.

Soil and climate
The Conero promontory greatly influences the climate of the coastal areas. In the northern part above the Conero the perturbations and the cold winds coming from the north make the winters very rigid. In the southern part instead, sheltered from the mountain, the hot and humid winds of the south rise, thus making the winter milder and more rainy. The difference between winter and summer is felt a lot in this region; in fact there are very cold winters of particularly hot summers.
History
Even before the arrival of the Romans, the Piceni lived in the region, a population of Italic origin, in the hills and the Senoni Gauls confined along the coast. With the conquests by the Romans this area was called, retaining its name from the inhabitants, Picenum. It took about ten centuries for it to be called Marche. In the ancient German language 'Mark' means border region. In fact the Marche became a border area with the Holy Roman Empire. The feuds that the emperors gave to the nobles to be called were marquisates, from which the Marca of Fano, the Marca of Camerino, the March of Ancona, took the name. Here is explained the reason why today despite being a single region, has the name in the plural.
Typical products
In the Marches, verdicchio vineyards meet, from which really interesting whites are obtained. The DOC Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi is quite large and the heart of the area, where the wine takes the name of "classic", covers 90% of the total area. In DOC Verchicchio di Matelica, less extensive and characterized by a more markedly hilly and elevated territory, wines with greater character are produced.
Typical dishes
Among the most famous appetizers is the ciauscolo or ciavuscolo, typical of the Macerata and Piceno, a soft sausage of minced pork, well-seasoned, with salt and pepper, to spread on fresh or toasted bread, the Marche cup, bagged pork with pepper and nutmeg, mazzafegato, liver sausage and pork lung flavored with salt and spices, also called crazy sausage, to be consumed cooked on the grill a few days after production. Among the first courses you can remember the cappelletti, similar to those of Romagna but stuffed with roast pork, boiled capon and beef marrow, ravioli with fillets of sole, stuffed with ricotta, parsley, eggs and nutmeg, served with a sauce of sole fillets, taglierini with meat sauce, tortellini, giant ravioli filled with ricotta, cheese, spinach and aromatic herbs.
