Rosso Conero (DOC)
Primarily made from the Montepulciano grape variety.
Sharing its name with that of Monte Conero, which rises to an altitude of 572 metres above sea level and overlooks the city of Ancona, this red wine has a long and illustrious history. Indeed, the wines of Ancona were cited by Pliny the Elder.
Rosso Piceno (DOC)
Primarily made from Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Passerina and, on occasions, the local Trebbiano grape varieties.
Rosso Piceno is produced throughout the region, particularly in the provinces of Ancona, Macerata and of course, Ascoli Piceno, from whence it takes its name. The ancient Italic people the Piceni populated southern Marche before the cultural supremacy of Rome.
Verdicchio dei Castelli di Iesi (DOC)
Made from the ancient Verdicchio grape variety.
One of Le Marche’s most famous wines on both a domestic and international level, it is named after both the historic grape-growing district of Castelli di Jesi and the Italian word for green – verde – due to its slight green/yellow hue.
