Tenuta dell’Ugolino is an estate located in the Marche region, in the town of Castelplanio, one of the most recognized areas for the production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. With a total of 8 hectares under vine, Tenuta dell’Ugolino achieves a high quality production thanks to a meticulous care of the vines and constant monitoring.
Owned by the Petrini family, the company was born in 1980 as a traditional agricultural enterprise in the Marche region. Over the years, Andrea Petrini has evolved winemaking as the main activity of the estate, and has turned the family business into an award-winning winery. He named the vineyard after his grandfather Ugolino, a strong and inspiring character who once worked the fields of wealthy landowners and saved what he could for others less fortunate than himself.
Tenuta dell’Ugolino pays particular attention to the vinification of the grapes using traditional methods. The result of this work are wonderful wines of undeniable personality and character, including Rosso Piceno DOC, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico DOC and Verdicchio Classico Superiore DOCG Vigneto del Balluccio. The Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOCG is reserved only for wines produced in the ancient area of origin, which extends from the communities along the banks of the Esino River to the central hills facing the valleys of the Misa and Nevola Rivers.
