The Cuisine

Our cuisine is based on the row materials that we produce in our Farm: cereals, fruits, legumes, vegetables, eggs and farm animals.

We buy what we don't produce from farms of our region,possibly choosing those who use organic methods of cultivation and that ensure high quality standard.

Extra-virgin olive oil, mushrooms, and truffles, fresh and seasoned cheese. Meat of local production with "Marchigian" breed cattle that gives particular quality and value to the "Fiorentina steak", to the "Tagliata" or "Filetto" etc.

Everything is home-made: tagliatelle, ravioli,passatelli, gnocchi, bread, pizza, and cakes following the recipes of our tradition.

The wines of " Le Marche"

There are more than 20.000 hectars of vineyards in the Marche, with about 2.000.000 hectolitres of wine producted every year. Among these wines, over 30% are D.o.c. and this percentage is increasing every year. Some denominatious have been renowed, introduced (like d.o.c. Esino) and increased in the last year, just like the extension of typologies in the D.o.c. of Colli Pesaresi, or to that of Verdicchio (Castelli di Jesi and Matelica). The denominations of Rosso Piceno and Falerio have been changed a bit from the vintage of 2001. And also there are the new D.o.c. of Offida ( with four different tipologies) and Colli Maceratesi Red. For the first time in the Marche, it has been instituded a D.o.c.g. concerning the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona wich is a very peculiar red spumante, completely marchigian. Moreover, most of the denominations, and thus of producted wines, is based on an important and rich biological difference with the valorization of vine-tendril autochthonous both whites and reds. In the Marche we can also find vine-tendril like: Merlot, Black Pinot, Cabernet sauvignon, Barbera, Syrah, White Pinot and Grey Pinot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Grechetto to obtain excellent wines, sometimes authentic outsiders. And we should't forget that a considerable number of products maintains a reasonable relation between quality and price.
