Marche, Abruzzo, Molise in this series of Wine Boxes dedicated to a homogeneous territory, able however to offer very different products at an organoleptic level.
Marches: Its pedoclimatic characteristics make this region particularly suitable for wine-growing; there are about 20,000 hectares of vines, all in hilly areas, with an annual production of almost one million hectolitres. The traditional form of cultivation is the alberello, but this is giving way to the espalier.
The reference areas are Conero, Jesi, Offida and Matelica.
Abruzzo: a very prolific region in terms of production, with almost 3 million hectolitres of annual output from 35,000 hectares under vine; the region is mainly hilly and has a mild climate, especially on the Adriatic side.
The 90% of Abruzzo wine comes from hillside farms, where the Pergola, called Capanna, is widespread, as well as counterespalier, spurred cordon and Guyot.
Molise: A small region (smaller than the Metropolitan City of Rome) nestling between hills and mountains, producing 350000 hectares per year from the almost 7000 hectares of vines in the area, mostly in the province of Campobasso. The climate is semi-continental with hot summers and cold winters characterised by wide temperature ranges.
The two reference areas for vine training, predominantly spurred cordon and espalier, are the Trigno River Valley and the Biferno Valley.
