Marotti Campi Wines
Viticulturists and successful ones, as the hilltop villa of the family demonstrates – since the mid-18th century, their 140 acres of vineyards do produce Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi (we are in the northern part of the region, predominantly a white wine area), but the house is also well known for its fine bottles of Lacrima di Morro d’Alba, made from an interesting and aromatic local grape variety of which the Marotti Campi are a major interpreter, both in their regular bottling and in the well made Superior version.
Verdicchio is by no means neglected, however, and is produced in a variety of versions: the classic Albiano, the Superiore Luzano, the Riserva Salmariano, and the dried-grape dessert wine, Onyr.
Giovanni Marotti Campi, who took over operations in 1991, firmly believes in his work, his house and its potential, his zone, and his grapes. And in this he is following a long family tradition: in the late 1800’s, the vineyards were already being planted very densely, with over 8000 vines per hectare.
A concept a century ahead of its time.
