Marches

Historically, the region is most famous for the production of Verdicchio, a crisp white wine that made a distinctive impression outside of Italy when it arrived in a green amphora bottle. <p>Producers have worked hard to revitalize Verdicchio’s image by focusing on the fact that when well made, Verdicchio is a white wine capable of reaching top levels of quality. Production standards have risen steadily. This seems to herald a revival for a white produced at the rate of more than 20 million bottles a year that has typically been described as Italy's premier fish wine. <p>In recent years, Marche has been discovered for its red wines as well. The red wines of Marche are based chiefly on Sangiovese or Montepulciano.
