Understanding italian wine. 3 wines to discover 1 region: Le Marche. Montepulciano (not to be confused with the homonymous Tuscan town where Vino Nobile is produced) and Sangiovese are the two grapes that are the basis of the Le Marche’s most recognized red DOCG wine, named Conero. The Conero Nature Park is a protected enviromental oasis of woodland and spectacular white cliffs plunging into the sea.
Le Marche region also produces a crisp and fresh white, named Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC and DOCG, which is an ideal match with seafood dishes such as the traditional Brodetto, or cheeses such as pecorino. Last but not least there is the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona DOCG. This red sparkling wine is a 3 fermentation style wine made from rare italian grapes such as Vernaccia Nera.
