Marche’s Winemaking has a Long History

The history of winemaking in Marche can be dated back to centuries ago.

In Marche, the wine production was found to be influenced by various cultures among which Etruscans, Romans, and Lombards were more significant.

The essence of these different cultures is highly visible in the breadth of winemaking tradition in the Marche region.

The influence of these cultures is the major reason for the availability of a variety of wine styles in this region.

Vineyards and Wines of Marche

The Marche region is found to have several terroirs that are more suitable for the wine grape cultivation.

In particular, we can find some important vineyards along the rolling coastal hills around the Ancona region.

In Marche, the vineyards are found to make up to 60,000 acres producing two million hl of wine in a year.

The rich wine production in Marche wine region is mainly influenced by the Apennines, the Adriatic Sea, and the rivers of this region.

The region is found to be experiencing different climatic conditions which are found to provide the warmer, as well as the cooler viticulture areas.

In Marche, we can find soils that are rich in calcium carbonate and clay that are found to be responsible for the unique terroirs in this region.

A majority of the wines that are produced in this region are coming under the IGT labels.

This is because; most of the wines are not adhering to the strict DOC rules.

However, they are found to span vineyards, grape blends, and aging techniques which are providing the wine producers more freedom to attempt new things with both blending and techniques.

This region is also producing DOCs and DOCGs but only around 20%. At present, Marche has 15 DOC wines and 4 DOCG wines.

Popular Wine Grapes of Marche

For a long time now, this region is found to be more popular for its white wines especially for the varietal ‘Verdicchio’.

This grape variety can be found in two of the Marche’s DOCG wines and some DOC wines as blends.

The two DOCG wines that contain this grape variety are: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio dei Metalica.

These wines which will be green-hued, crisp, and green-tinged will have a lively acidity. In addition, these wines will have some essence of herbs too.
