Wines of the Rest of Central Italy
Verdicchio is a dry white wine that comes from the Marche region in central Italy. It's a dry, crisp, restrained wine with bitter almonds on the finish. It's best drank within a year of the vintage date.

A reliable producer of Verdicchio is Fazi-Battaglia, which is a négociant that controls more than 20 percent of production of this white Italian wine.

Marche is on the eastern seaboard of Italy, where the locals consume fresh fish and seafood with lashings of Verdicchio.

Marche also produces some good red wine, a fine example of which is the Velenosi "Il Brecciarolo" Rosso Piceno Superiore 2002 made from Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes. Smooth cherry, cinnamon, and sandalwood flavors swirl around in this easy-to-like wine.

Wines of the Rest of Central Italy
Orvieto is a white wine from the Umbria region of Central Italy. It is generally a dry, medium- to full-bodied wine that's slightly lemony and made from Trebbiano, blended with Malvasia, Verdello, Grechetto, and Drupeggio. Bigi is a reliable producer.

Lungarotti is a leading producer from Umbria famous for its excellent red wine, Rubesco Reserva. It's made mainly from Sangiovese grapes and tastes of ripe red berries and spice, with long, lingering length.

The two main wines from the Abruzzo region are Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo.

Wines of the Rest of Central Italy
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a red wine made from the Montepulciano grape, and is round, deeply colored, and easy to drink. It's best drank young—within a few years of vintage—and it tastes of plum, blackberries, and sweet cherries. This is a wine that generally delivers quite good value for the money.

Wines of the Rest of Central Italy
Not to be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made from an entirely different grape—one called Montepulciano rather than Prugnolo Gentile. The wines are smooth with flavors of plum and cherry.

Wines of the Rest of Central Italy
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is a white wine from Abruzzo made from the lemony Trebbiano grape. The wine is crisp and fairly neutral with hints of lemon zest and nuts. Drink it young and chilled.
