Tenuta dell’Ugolino is located in Castelplanio, in the Marche region, one of the most renowned communes for the production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi.
The Denominazione di Origine Controllata (Denomination of Controlled Origin) of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi is, in fact, reserved only to the wine produced in the oldest original area which extends from the communes located along the banks of Esino river to the hilly areas overlooking the Misa and Nevola valleys.
Tenuta dell’Ugolino winery, owned by the Petrini family, was established in 1980 as a traditional farm typical of the Marche region, but with time, the viticultural component became its main activity thanks to the passion of young Andrea towards his land and the wines produced.
The production aspect, of the total 8 hectares of vineyards, is aimed at the production of quality wines by means of the maniacal care of vineyards and their constant monitoring as well as paying particular attention to the vinification of grapes in the winery with the traditional method.
The results of this commitment give two wines of indisputable personality and character: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico DOC and Verdicchio Classico Superiore DOC Vigneto del Balluccio.
