Italy has some of the oldest wine production methods in the world and almost every part of the country is planted under vine. From the Alps in the north to the very southernmost parts of Sicily where Africa is almost in sight, wine is successfully cultivated. In addition to the latitude covered, Italy's many mountains and hills provide a plethora of altitudes for grape growing in various soils and micro-climates. The extensive coastlines along the peninsula that is Italy provide maritime climates for the coastal wine-growing areas. Over 350 grape varieties are 'authorised' in Italy, though up to 550 varieties are thought to be grown.
The classification system of Italian wines has four classes, with the intention of defining a wine's origin a quality. Two of these classes are table wines, whilst DOC and DOCG fall under the EU quality wine produced in a specific region category. Vino da Tavola (VDT) means that the wine comes from Italy. Most of these wines are generally basic table wines that are consumed domestically. Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) denotes a more specific region within Italy, and the resultant will be of higher quality than simple table wines, but won't conform to the rules required for higher certification. Both Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) are regionally more specific than IGT, and have stricter rules regarding the grape varieties grown, yields per hectare, minimum alcohol levels and so on. The major difference between DOC and DOCG is that the latter has to undergo a blind-tasting session to ensure the highest quality is achieved. Italy has 32 DOCG appelations, 311 DOC appelations and 120 IGT zones.
Key regions include Piedmont, Tuscany, Abruzzo, Veneto, Sicily and Sardinia. Common white varieties grown are Pinot Grigio, Arneis, Vermentino, Verdicchio, Fiano and Moscato. The red varieties grown the most are Sangiovese, Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano, Primitivo, Nero d'Avola and Corvina.
Marche is a wine region in central Italy. Emilia Romagna borders it to the north, Abruzzo to the south, and Tuscany to the west. The vineyards of the Marche span four provinces, with 13 Denominazioni di Origine Controllata (DOCs), five Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCGs), and an Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT). Soils here are typically limestone and clay. Wine production mainly centres on red blends of Montepulciano and Sangiovese and the popular white wines from Verdicchio. Other plantings include local variety Biancame, Trebbiano Toscano, Passerina, Vernaccia, Lacrima, and Malvasia. Montepulciano wines are deep-ruby-coloured and full-flavoured, with powerful fruit and well-balanced structure. Verdicchio wines typically have crisp acidity, green-fruit and blossom aromas and flavours, and medium body. The most well-known Verdicchios are Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica. Both are fresh, fruity wines with strong acidity and usually an almond note on the finish.

About the brand Costadoro
The Costadoro Company was founded in the early 1900s through a union of ancient and noble families of the Piceno. In 1969, Count Mimmo decided to start marketing their wines in bottles, by purchasing additional farms in the Piceno territory. The current lands of Costadoro, all organically cultivated, extend along the ridges and valleys of the hinterland, until they reach the shores of the nearby Adriatic Sea. It is of these vineyards in their beautiful location, sheltered by the hills of the districts of Offida and Ripatransone, and caressed by the sea breeze, that the DOC and DOCG wines are born, which are now being marketed in the best restaurants in Italy and abroad.
