    Montecappone, Italy
    Montecappone Gianluca Mirizzi and Family Winery Image

    Montecappone was founded in the late 1960s in Jesi in the Ancona region of Marche, Italy. In 1997 the Bomprezzi-Mirizzi family (owners of the famous wine shop in Rome called Enoteca Tuscolana) bought the property and immediately began renovating and expanding the winery. They also decided to replant almost all of the vineyards. The Montecappone property currently stretches over 54 hectares of vineyards and 12 hectares of olive groves that are scattered amongst the hills and castles of beautiful Jesi. The focus in the vineyard centers on low yields, careful selection of grapes, and respect for this beautiful land. Mr. Mirizzi is intent on showcasing terroir through collaboration with all who work with him: consultants, agronomists, and wine experts. The wine is vinified and bottled in Montecappone's completely updated winery. In his book Native Wine Grapes of Italy, Vinous Media's Italian expert, Ian d'Agata, says that that "Verdicchio is arguably Italy's greatest native white grape variety."

Grown mostly in the region of Marche, Verdicchio is particularly well-suited to the maritime climate and clay of the Castelli di Jesi region, which is located in the northern part of Marche.

    Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

    One of central Italy’s classic white grapes, Verdicchio thrives in two distinct zones of the Marche. The best vineyards of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi adorn hillsides a mere 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea. The vineyards of the smaller, more inland Verdicchio di Matelica, are at higher elevation. Somm Secret—Recent genetic discoveries have proven that the Verdicchio grape is identical to Trebbiano di Soave, Trebbiano di Lugana and Trebbiano Veltenesi.
