We've done the hard work so you don't have to

Huddled immediately south of the vast urban and industrial sprawl of Emilia-Romagna, the Marche forms a natural boundary between the heady reds of the deep south and the elegant whites of the north.  It offers both and does so from one of the most visually stunning regions in Italy.  The high Apennines tumble gently down to the Adriatic and between the two lie some of Italy’s least-known and best-value wines.

The north of the region is concerned with just a single variety, Verdicchio, which in its villainous amphora-shaped bottle has done its best to deter a generation of consumers from ever going near Italian white wine again.  Most comes from the vast Castelli di Jesi DOC but just inland Matelica produces a more compelling version.  To the south the overlapping DOCs of Rosso Piceno and Falerio exploit the ubiquitous duo of Sangiovese and Trebbiano.  Estates like La Monacesca and Saladini Pilastri both produce reasonably priced, appealing examples of the region’s potential.
