Il vino dei Piceni


What better way to open the semester than a trip to the Marche region… Without ever leaving the university? brought us along to this beautiful journey through the aroma and the taste of central Italy, showcasing once again the unicity and the diversity within the Italian wine industry.WhatsApp Image 2019-03-02 at 19.18.38After a brief introduction to wine tasting techniques, the guests were welcomed with a glass of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Doc “Ylice” from Poderi Mattioli, a splendid white wine made with Verdicchio grapes. Characterized by a straw yellow with green highlights and a powerful flowery, fruity and herbaceous aroma it is set apart from many other white wines for its ageing potential and proved to be both complex and elegant. Its sapid, dry, long-lasting flavour and its pleasant freshness made it stand its ground even compared to the powerful red wines that followed.WhatsApp Image 2019-03-02 at 19.18.37The second wine was a Rosso Piceno Doc “Quiete” from Cantina Bastianelli, a blend of four parts of Montepulciano grapes and a part of Sangiovese grapes. Well-structured and balanced, with a powerful aroma of preserved ripe fruits and a balsamic aftertaste, it showcased the strength of the grapes and the terroir. Soft to the palate and with a well-rounded tannin, it made for a very pleasant experience.WhatsApp Image 2019-03-02 at 19.18.37 (1)To conclude the evening on a special note, it was time for a very traditional and unique Lacrima di Morro d’Alba Doc by Fratelli Badiali. Although arguably less complex then the two preceding wines, it proved no less enjoyable. Soft to the palate, fragrant with its fruity and flowery scent and easily approachable it certainly found its place in the evening’s lineup as a showcase of Italian tradition.
