This is the youngest DOC wine in the Province of Pesaro Urbino. The name derives from the homonymous ancient un-fortified village that was founded at the beginning of the 13th century by the Gubbio family. They were also responsible for the introduction of Aleatico into the viticulture of this region. The production area is limited to the area from the high Valle del Cesano covering the villages of Pergola, Fratte Rosa, Frontone, San Lorenzo in campo and Serra Sant’Abbondio. The Vernaccia di Pergola variety, which is actually a clone of the original Aleatico, must be used for at least 70% of the blend.
The remaining 30% may be made of black grape varieties that are suitable for cultivation in the Marches region. The production regulations allow 3 versions: “Rosso”, “Novello” and “Passito”
