Marche

Marche, is situated on the central east coast of Italy. It is slightly less known compared to other Italian regions, but in recent years has been rediscovered and appreciated for its natural beauty, history, culture, food and wine.
The area produces excellent red wines: Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes combine to give birth to the prestigious Rosso Conero.

However, one of Marche's most interesting native grapes is certainly Lacrima di Morro d'Alba. It is an extremely aromatic red grape, which grows in the province of Ancona and produces unique wines with distinct floral notes of rose and violet.
The characteristic white grape of this region is Verdicchio that produces the famous DOC Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica. They have a distinguishing aroma and taste of Golden apples.

Pecorino and Passerina are two other typical wines from this region. Pecorino's flavour is fresh and mineral with a lingering finely acidic savoury nuance, which combines perfectly with Asian food. The Passerina grape produces a wonderful sparkling wine with a spicy bouquet recalling notes of tea and chamomile whilst its palate is rich flavoured, fresh and with mineral notes.
