Wine Spectator: Exploring Italy’s Marche
Wine Spectator travels through the wine districts of Marche to tell about a little-known region, which deserves to be discovered.
A real tribute to our land that explores hilly landscapes, beaches, nature reserves, medieval and renaissance villages and agricultural treasures. Focused on the quality wine production that takes advantage from the diversity of land aspects from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea. A diversity of terroir that can be found in the varied styles of wine.
An extensive reportage from hospitality to wine industry, with the interview to Michele Bernetti regarding the new family project in the tourism industry (the Grand Hotel Palace di Ancona among the best hotel reviewed by Wine Spectator) and the hospitality figures: "We host less than 1% of foreign tourists. That means Marche region attracts more Italian tourists than international travelers, but also that there are wide opportunities that can be grasped out of here.”
And if it is true that there is still a long way to go from the point of view of tourism, regarding winemaking the Marche has been captured more and more the interest from US consumers. A versatile region capable of offering a wide range of wine styles: from the great iconic wine of Marche, the Verdicchio, up to the northernmost version of Montepulciano wine that can be found in Italy, the Conero one. These are the two varieties that most impressed the Wine Spectator editors: our Campo San Giorgio and Vecchie Vigne have been rewarded with very high scores.
We do not want to reveal further details; here the full article.
A special thanks to Wine Spectator for taking our Marche on the international spotlight.
