Two hidden Italian regions worth discovering


In Abruzzo and Le Marche, Italy shows an appealing, more rugged side than the polish of more famous tourist regions. The most exclusive is wine of Le Marche is Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, often made in a fruity, elegant style and always with a certain body. Other great wines are the white Pecorino grape and of course the Montepulciano, which is blended with Sangiovese to make Rosso Piceno. Rosso Conero is a quality grape often used in splendid isolation and produced in the beautiful Natural Park of Monte Conero.
Abruzzo is very much its own place when it comes to wine production and has a rich history of viticulture. Today, the famed Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is perhaps the most famous and is quite distinct from the Sangiovese that typically is utilized in Tuscan Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Rosé wine is produced in the western province of L’Aquila, as is a wine called Cerasuolo, which makes use of the region’s Montepulciano grape.

Some names of wineries in Le Marche and Abruzzo: Umani Ronchi, Villa Bucci, San Lorenzo, Masciarelli, Valentini.
