Le Marche region is probably the best-kept secret in Italian enology. A small region on the east coast of the country, whose tradition of quality wine-making dates back to the time of ancient Romans. The particular conformation of the land, which makes Le Marche the region with the highest percentage of hills in Italy, the proximity of the sea and the mountains and the network of rivers that provide high hydration to the soil, make Le Marche home to some of the best and most awarded Italian wines.
In this session at WMC21, you will learn what makes this region so special in terms of wine production and you will listen to the fascinating story of Velenosi, a top player in the region and an internationally awarded winery, which started from scratch only 38 years ago and got to ship its wines in over 55 countries around the world nowadays.
With the voice of the Tiziana Forni, one of the best wine connoisseurs of this region, you will learn the secrets of the fascinating grape varietals of Le Marche, like Pecorino or Verdicchio and you’ll hear the intriguing story of how an almost unknown winery only a few decades ago, produces today a red wine which is rated, vintage after vintage, among the absolute best of the country.
