Wine gives taste to life

Poderi dei Colli’s winery sinks its memory in the green heart of the province of Ascoli Piceno, a place rich in colors, scents and flavors.

The strong temperature range between night and day, the low humidity, the freshness of climate, the proximity of the sea and the mountainous areas influence the proper development of the vines, the growth of grapes of the highest quality and the aromatic, fruity and velvety bouquet of the resulting wine.

This is where a fine wine with high quality standards is born, a combination of experience, nature, art and an environmentally friendly culture.

PODERI DEI COLLI

Our wines

SINCE 1960, IN THE GREEN HEART OF PICENO

Poderi dei Colli has chosen organic and organic has chosen to reward it

Edward VII

One not only drinks wine, one smells it, observes it, tastes it, sips it and-one talks about it.

Poderi dei Colli’s winery sinks its memory in the Piceno area, a place rich in colors, scents and flavors.
Our grapes grow in the hills of the Marche region, pampered by the heat of the sun and refreshed by the wind.

The vines

Passion is a great strength for Poderi dei Colli’s winery, noticeable in the accurate organic cultivation and in the enthusiastic cultivation of native vineyards, great heritage of the Marche Region and the Piceno area.

IGT/IGP


The IGT category (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) defines rather vast production areas, in most cases an entire region, and allows the production of wine with authorized and recommended grapes in the area that often provides a wide choice, leaving the producer greater freedom of production.
This category, although representing the first level of quality legally recognized, actually includes a considerable quantity of high quality wines and does not lack pleasant surprises.
This category should be carefully considered by consumers because, recently, producers of quality wines tend to use it for the classification of their products.
The IGP category (Indicazione Geografica Protetta) is equivalent to the category just described.

DOC/DOP


The DOC category (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) defines an area, usually smaller than an IGT, with production criteria more rigid than the previous category. It is a recognized label for wines originating in a small and medium-sized geographical area, limited and circumscribed. The wines are made with grapes from vines recommended and authorized in the region and produced according to a precise specification that establishes the number of strains, the yield and the minimum sugar content. The wines obtained must comply with it for what are the chemical-physical and organoleptic characteristics. Any classic, confidential and superior particulars to be indicated on the labelling must be accepted by the specification. The period between certification and bottling may not exceed two years. The DOP category (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) is equivalent to the category just described.

DOCG


In the last quality category, at the highest level of the system, the DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) defines very limited production areas with production and evaluation criteria more stringent than all the others.
Bottles of wine belonging to this category must be marked in order to guarantee the content of the bottle and, to prevent any counterfeiting, numbered with special seals and issued by the Italian State (also indicating the name). They can be bottled only in the production area. The disciplinary provides for low yields in grapes and higher alcohol levels. In addition, they must undergo a minimum period of aging in tank or bottle. The period between certification and bottling shall not exceed six months.

OTHER CLASSIFICATION



Some denomination specifications also establish additional types attributed to wines having particular production characteristics and which are indicated on the label with the following terms:

• Classico – indicates a wine produced in the area historically typical and more suited to the denomination to which it belongs

• Superiore – indicates a wine having an alcoholic strength higher than the minimum requirements of the denomination, such as PICENO SUPERIORE

• Riserva – indicates a wine that has undergone a longer aging period than the minimum requirements of the denomination
