Italian Wine of Marche
The Marche is bounded to the west by the Apennines, Umbria, and a corner of Tuscany, in the north by Emilia, to the south by Abruzzo, and in the east by the Adriatic. The best-known towns along the coast are Pesaro and Ancona, the best know inland places are Macerata and Ascoli Piceno.
In terms of the quality for its price, this is probably the best value red wine from Italy. This is not a great wine but it is extremely delicious and quite inexpensive. It is produced just inland from the coast between Ancona and Macerata. Montepulciano grapes which may be supplemented with Sangiovese ensure a clear ruby red wine with pleasant fruity bouquet of blackberry and blackcurrant with a full, rounded, and fleshy taste that is dry. Drink this Italian wine at 14-16°C (57.2-60.8°F) or 16-17°C (60.8-62.6°F) for a Riserva.
