Wines & Family from Le Marche, Italy
We bid farewell to a summer visit from family from Le Marche, Italy, with a tour of that region’s sleeper wine list. We start with a Passerina Spumante with fried stuffed olives. Then proceed with two white wines- Pecorino, derived from the original clones from our grandmother’s tiny mountain hamlet of Pescara del Tronto, and then Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. Then onto the reds, including Rosso Piceno, Lacrima di Morro and Rosso Conero. Served with central Italian cheese and our French baguettes.
