Le Marche is the easternmost central region of Italy – comprising a central spine of the Apennine Mountains descending into the long, flat plains of Adriatic coastline – a land enriched by the remains of mediaeval settlements and castles.
Marches is predominantly a white wine-producing region in which Verdicchio dominates – one of the few central Italian white varietals with real character and personality. This hardy and vigorous vine thrives in the dry climes of Marche's spectacular mountainsides, and is capable of producing whites of real class with a defining mineral streak reminiscent of good Chablis.
The best Verdicchio hails from the DOCs of Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica, and that is where you will find La Monacesca; a small, family-run estate run by Casimiro and Aldo Cifola, quietly crafting some of the finest whites in all of Italy.
