The characteristics of the soil, the climate, the different altitudes combined with the work and the millennial bond of the community with the territory make Morro d’Alba an area that has always been well suited to the production of top-quality wine and oil..
Morro d’Alba preserves much historical evidence that dates as far back as the year 1000; the remains of Romanesque villas, the underground town, the Utensilia museum, which houses a collection of the tools, machinery and documentation of the sharecroppers in the Marche region.
In fact, several years ago, a Golden Medallion depicting Theodoric dating back to the 5th century was found in a cultivated field in Sant’Amico.The find was a unique piece of numismatic iconographic art that is now preserved at the Terme Museum in Rome.
A distinctive feature of Morro d’Alba is “La Scarpa”; a unique and evocative example in Italy of a completely accessible, covered walkway that runs along the entire perimeter of the historic centre.
Along the way, you can enjoy a spectacular view, which on a very clear and sunny day you can see out to the sea.

It produces structured and full-bodied wines that have marked floral notes and fruity aromas with an unmistakable almond aftertaste. The name Verdicchio derives from verde (or “green”) and refers to the straw yellow hue with green reflections.
