This territory is a degradation of gentle hills and valleys that descend from the Apennines to the sea. Inland areas surviving ancient villages, medieval settlements enclosed by walls, castles and fortresses overlooking the hills.
And the hills are the areas most happy with the flourish of vine and the production of excellent grapes. The brightness of the sun and its heat used to convey other sugar content and delicate perfumes, essential to get good wines in the entire region is rich.

Regional wine: 20 000 hectares of vineyards, about a third for the production of DOC, 1.3 million hectoliters of wine with a slight majority of whites (59%), an average yield of 13 t / ha and an average surface farm of 0.85 ha.
The strong and the fastidious inhabitants, still tied to a culture thousands of years of rural history could not fail to give the wine of the M. features on par with the best known names and to his land, an unquestionable vocation.
But leave it to Hermes Griffins (journalist who died in 1987) to describe the task, with its own piece of 1961, geography and character of wines from the region:
" The wines, but not wine," said the Felcino thirty years ago, and if no sentence was more just than this, it is true that no sentence more these are formulated to explain the enormous wealth that comes from the vineyards , the rows in a slope, the vines to elms brides on the back of our hills.
This territory has a wine for each district: the red of the Conero know the strong and generous land that gave birth, has the temper of the quarrymen and stonecutters whose grief knows every soul, and the Rosso Piceno (whose area is extends to the province of Ancona, and Rosso Piceno Superiore in particular) has the air of sturdy and sentimental of people under the brand, the wines of Macerata (Macerata White Hills, Red Hills Maceratesi and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona) and stop (Falerio) tell you the secret qualities of sweetness and domestic farmers surrounding homes.
The wines of Pesaro (Bianchello, Colli Pesaresi White and Red Hills Pesaresi) already know of Romagna and have already insinuating that the stamp is in the parlance of the people of Gallic brand.
These wines go for the world and make their way as the region In Rome, Milan, in big cities, you will find them anywhere, without first say who they are, trust in the recognition of others and of no great surprise to be found if they surprised. Who was born in the M. stalls but is sure to arrive. Order no wonder the Lucky touched the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi - blond, slightly bitter, surprising for a simple, suitable for the marine flavor - and the Verdicchio di Matelica. Perhaps he will soon be called Verdicchio in big cities all the other wines brothers, who for centuries held the region deserved company, just as immigrants when they broke. And then will come the time to say that we also acknowledge M. at the table. "
Another prophecy fulfilled.
They have since been permitted three DOC in 1987 Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, precious, so rare in the amount as unique in taste; Esino white and red in 1995 and considered before a table wine. Two wines whose land is wedged in that noble Verdicchio dei Castelli. In 2001 and Pecorino and Passerina Offida Offida Red are considered the ultimate expression of typical Piceno wines, as well as the exploitation of native grapes. In recent years they have developed technology to refine wines that link to established traditions. The aging of red wines (especially Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno Superiore) has reintroduced the tradition of "cooper" and, therefore, of the premises where the parade in oak barrels and express the image of the typical winery.
There are also new technologies such as "barrels" or aging of moderate some whites, including Verdicchio, which enriches the wine tastes and smells that stimulate even the most discerning consumer.
