The Marches, or Le Marche as the Italians call it, sits on the east coast of Italy, where the Adriatic sea breeze blows off the water and up the many river valleys, reaching as far inland as the Apennine Mountains. With soil rich in clay, calcium, and limestone, Le Marche makes a wonderful home to over 60,000 acres of grape vines. And, of course, with a winemaking tradition that predates Rome, it is no wonder that a land like this can produce such memorable wines. Sandwiched between Emilia-Romagna to the north and Abruzzi to the south, and with Umbria in its backyard, the Marches is best known for its vibrant, mineral-rich whites and lighter yet savory reds.
In 2003, after leaving the pharmaceutical industry to pursue his dream of making wine like so many members of his family, Francesco Bellini and his wife Marisa were given the opportunity to purchase a vineyard in the picturesque countryside surrounding the village of Montefiore dell’Aso, just a mere 35 miles from his childhood home. After years of cultivating and reviving a property that had been neglected and left in disrepair for the better part of 30 years, Domodimonti finally opened its doors in the Fall of 2010. Incorporating solar panels, windmills, and other eco-friendly technologies, Francesco, along with the help of renowned enologist Carlo Ferrini, has been making wines naturally and passionately; that means chemical-free, natural yeasts, no added sugars, no acid adjustments, no additives to improve texture, no color manipulation, no potassium sorbate, and no added sulfites to prevent oxidation. In other words, the wines of Domodimonti are as natural as they come, wines that give you all of the joy and none of the allergens that some people find themselves unable to tolerate.
