Le Marche, Abruzzo and Molise, the vineyards that line the central part of Italy’s Adriatic coast, produce around 20% of the country’s wine. Historically, the emphasis there was on quantity over quality but recent investment in the vineyards and wineries is beginning to pay dividends. We will introduce you to some of the new wave producers of quality Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Biferno.
