Marche | Wine region



On the Adriatic Sea in the south of Emilia-Romagna and in the east of Tuscany and Umbria stretches the Marche region. In gently undulating hills the land slopes down to the sea, plains are practically non-existent. These hills, particularly suitable for viticulture, are protected from the sea winds and favored by the light and warmth of the sun. Of course, innovation in viticulture has also taken hold here and the traditional 'alberello' training of the vines has been abandoned in favor of less expensive trellis systems. Wine production is based on the red grape varieties Sangiovese and Montepulciano - which form the basis of Rosso Piceno. And for the white varieties, on Verdicchio and, more recently, Pecorino. Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, in the classic amphora bottle, is also very well known abroad. - Gerardo

"If only for the variety of vines, the Marches are of particular interest for Italian viticulture. Apart from this, the relief of the landscape and the climatic conditions in this region create completely different starting positions for the winegrowers. The emphasis of production in all DOC areas is on indigenous varieties, they promote agricultural growth as much as tourism in certain areas." - Slow Wine

´Chiodo´ · Marche Bianco IGP 2019, Simone Capecci, Marken
Chiodo · Marche Bianco IGP 2019 (Bio)

Simone Capecci, Marche

Chiodo means 'nail' and is due to the name of this ancient grape variety. Bright straw yellow with subtle greenish reflections in the glass. Immediately appealing aroma of hawthorn, chamomile and fresh grasses. On the palate, refreshing and discreet acidity, extremely tasty, always slender and fruity.

According to DNA analysis, the history of the autochthonous grape variety Garofanata dates back to 1870. It is an interesting, unique and absolutely pure grape variety, which is native only to the Marche region. According to recent studies, the grape variety could not be assigned a father, nor a mother, and yet it has persisted over the centuries. The latest project from the hand of Simone Capecci aims to replant this forgotten grape variety in the region. Like a nail that you hammer to fix something permanently. A great and original white wine - not only for DIY! - Gerardo [TS06/20]

Tufilla · Marche Passerina IGP 2022 (Bio)

Simone Capecci, Marche

This original Adriatic white wine is made from the autochthonous Passerina grape variety: delicate straw-yellow color with golden accents. On the nose, subtle hints of tropical fruits, nuts and chamomile. The fine streak of acidity leads into the refined finish. - Gerardo [TS06/23]

"Nervous acidity makes the taste of the Tufilla pulsate. The single-varietal Passerina does not keep up with the Ciprea aromatically, but it certainly competes with it in its dynamism and the long spiciness in the finish." - Gambero Rosso

"Definitely worth the purchase is the Vertis, white top of the house. Aged in stainless steel, Verdicchio sings the praises of elegance with floral and anise tones. On the palate, it succeeds in a great coalition of juice and power, spicy tension and aromatic firmness." - Gambero Rosso

Ciprea is the result of years of research and breeding of the local Pecorino variety: the delicate aromas are reminiscent of exotic fruits such as banana and pineapple.

A well-structured white wine with aging potential. 100% Pecorino. - Gerardo [TS06/22]

Marche | Wine region | Buy at Gerardo

The Marches turn their backs on Romagna, Tuscany and Umbria and look out to sea. In gently rolling hills, the land slopes down to the coast, and two things, the products of an ancient agriculture and the spoils of fishermen define the cuisine there. Dishes from the coastal strip: Brodetto, for example, that tasty fish soup that the cuoco or cuoca prepares with lots of onions, garlic, parsley, tomatoes, bay leaves and a dash of white vinegar. Or then, determined by the peasant, the majestic pies, the fragrant roast pork, but above all those famous ''maccheroni alla chitarra'' that are the national dish in Abruzzo. There is no farmhouse there where you would not find the chitarra with its iron wires stretched over a wood, over which you lay the thin strips of egg dough. By pressing on these wires, the dough is cut into square cookies, which are then prepared ready for the table with meat sauce and Parmesan cheese. Simple dishes, rich in tradition, which the famous Italian writer Luigi Veronelli considered to be as secure on the tables as the ancient churches in the middle of their villages and the walled villages in turn on the tops of their hills. And if wines are produced here in lesser quantity than elsewhere, they - like Verdicchio - are by no means behind in terms of quality.

Apart from the already mentioned Verdicchio, the most famous wine representatives of the region are the red Rosso Piceno and the white wines made from the rediscovered grape variety Pecorino.

Marche is a region rich in faces, but until today still a piece of 'undiscovered Italy'. This is because their level of awareness is far behind Tuscany and Piedmont due to little marketing activity - the 'Marches' are not yet a 'brand'. The name of the region 'Marche' undoubtedly derives from German, it has been used for individual areas in the past. Its provincial character, especially of the southern Marches, persisted until recent history.At first glance, all the above points are apparent drawbacks, but this has also spared the Marches from some of the unpleasant currents of modern times.

The money of the industrial north has properly plowed up some regions of Italy, such as the Maremma, in southern Tuscany. Entire landscapes have been bought up, transformed, given new vineyards, wineries and cellars. Almost all the well-known giants of the Italian wine scene opened branch wineries there. The consequences were serious (not only) for vineyard prices, because they literally exploded as a result. Moreover, the instant wineries that emerged in this way are not based on a local winemaking tradition - they are pure fads. Because by the Bekanntheitsgrd of a region the factor calculates like desired the vineyards for capitalistic projects are.

In contrast to it the inhabitants of the marks - the Marchegiani - are predominantly rural coined and lead a life in that frugality as large value applies. High flights are foreign to the people here, they prefer the healthy mediocrity. Nevertheless, there is a fear that the acquisition of value real estate could become unaffordable. For young winemakers, this is an important cost factor if they want to acquire or lease one or two additional vineyards. No winery inherently owns only top sites. With a lot of tact must be pre-felt with those who have become too old or frail, whether they would give their vineyards.

Because there are many emotions attached to the old vineyards and in the end it is just not only a question of price. The acquisition of new vineyards and the associated pricing are easily upset by overly fat wallets from Italy's industrial north. This form of money-making is new to the Marche and threatens centuries-old principles. Young winegrowers, who come from local winegrowing families, can easily calculate that with wine there will never be enough money to refinance the new prices of the Marche vineyards.

Unless one belongs to those 'winegrowers' who come to the Marche with various side incomes from industry, pharmacy, insurance or banking. the traditional farms do not have such funds and depend solely on the sale of their products. One quickly notices that, in addition to the long-established winegrowing families, more and more competitors from outside are appearing in the wine business of the brands. A form of competition for whom a vineyard is merely a new investment, and the wine market is a kind of stock exchange - into which you can buy with your checkbook. - Gerardo
