Verdicchio & Conero news
The Marche region: territory, wine, food and hospitality
About us Mission Contacts
The Marche
region encompasses a territory
that rises gently from the coast
toward the hills,
to reach as far as the mountains
where history and culture,
quality wines and food
have created a land
built on a human scale.
To live in these hills
is, indeed, a privilege.

The Umani Ronchi winery was the subject of a lengthy article published in the wine magazine, “Revue du vin de France China”; some of its best labels were mentioned, for example, Plenio, Verdicchio Riserva D.o.c.g. Classico 2009, Cumaro, Conero Riserva D.o.c.g. 2010, and San Lorenzo, Rosso Conero D.o.c. 2012.

Terre Cortesi Moncaro, which is a confirmed point of reference for cooperation in the Marche region with a turnover of 22.7 million euros and exports at the 52% mark, has recently presented its Madreperla to 200 guests. This latest exploit is a spumante metodo classico born of Verdicchio and Montepulciano grapes and made in both 60-month and 84-month versions. It is a sparkling wine with a huge personality, in which the noble structure of the Verdicchio is evident – a homage paid to the champagne-making tradition based on autochthonous vines.

Over the last few years, Verdicchio has been elevated to the podium and acclaimed as a great Italian white wine. Its sales have steadily increased, both on domestic and foreign markets, “but now the risk is that the number of cultivated hectares will no longer suffice” states Alberto Mazzoni, Head of the IMT (Istituto Marchigiano di Tutela di Vini – Marche Institute for the Protection of Wines). He goes on to say : “we are currently understocked and we aim to plant another 100 hectares of new vineyards by the end of this year.”
