White Marche Wines: Not Just Verdicchio

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Maybe it is just a coincidence, but here I am writing for the first time about Marche wines other than Verdicchio and my bulldog, whose name is Verdicchio, is a little nervous. But he has no reason to be jealous because my love for that wine is eternal. The fact is a proper journalist cannot ignore white wines that are rapidly gaining popularity among wine lovers, those made from Passerina, Pecorino and Trebbiano grapes, both single-grape wines and blended ones. Wines that owe much of their success to the recent, very strong interest in indigenous grapes, for which Italy is undoubtedly the world leader.

Later on it underwent major changes and the convent we see today dates mostly back to the 17th century, apart from a few still preserved original parts.

Giansante Brancorsini (the ‘Beato Sante’), born of a noble family in Montefabbri, close to Urbino, moved there in 1370 after killing a man in self-defense, in order to expiate his sins. He gained popularity thanks to his strong faith and to the many prodiges achieved while alive (among which the taming of a wolf; the miracle of an oak tree which, after receiving his blessing, started producing acrons with a little cross on them). Today it is a destination for pilgrimages and – to me – is a ‘patch from Heaven’ (both spiritually and phsycally, as I love to find my inner peace there, surrounded by centuries-old woods). […]
