The tasting laboratories offered at Terroir Marche 2016 propose unedited lectures and involve both the wines of the Marche and the Mosel region of Germany, a vertical tasting not to be missed and a challenge to reflect together how to evaluate a wine the moment you pick up a glass.
Every lab will include from 8-12 wines.

11 am - The light and the slate
The Rieslings of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer and how the exemplify their terroir
sold out

A voyage to the north of Europe to meet a winemaking territory radically different than Le Marche. Thanks to the twin cities of Ascoli Piceno and Treviri, terroirMarche is able to host winemakers who are members of the association ECOVIN.
This is a way for us to learn about the stories of the winemakers who have chosen to follow organic methods in a region where the climate can be really extreme, but where the light and slate soils are fundamental ingredients of an exceptional terroir able to produce some of the longest lived white wines in the world. Sonja Christ-Brendemuehl and Pierpaolo Rastelli will guide participants in the discovery of the minerality and luminosity of the wines of the Mosel.

3 pm - 2010 shades of red

A Polaroid of the red of the Marche in a classic year

If a vertical tasting is able to best express the distinctive traits of a single vineyard or a winery's style, a horizontal tasting of different wines in the same year can perhaps realistically show a photograph of an entire region and its productive potential.
The year 2010 which was optimal in all of Italy including Le Marche.
It is thought of as a classic year, with balanced maturation, and was able to produce red wines with mature tannins, but tense and vibrant, splendidly adapted to aging.
The Australian journalist, Jane Faulkner, will guide the participants through two main protagonists: Montepulciano and Sangiovese. Often united in a blend, but once in a while accompanying one another like companions on a voyage.

5 pm - Epistenology
The world of wine from the 100 points of Robert Parker to the square napkin of the grandmother

Epistonology (a new word) is the response of Nicola Perullo after watching decades of indisputable absolutism in wine analysis.
Bottles are dissected with a rigid voting scheme and given a numeric value which can determine fortune or disgrace. It is something far removed from the enjoyment of a perfumed beverage.
Epistenology, therefore, is a passage back to the knowing of the wine and with the wine liberating us to use the "judge of the imagination".
Are all wines equal? Certainly not! Perullo delves deeply into this theme in a tasting guided with Alessandro Morichetti.
