Vernaccia di Serrapetrona DOCG

 
The Guaranteed and Controlled Designation of Origin (DOCG) certification of Vernaccia di Serrapetrona is reserved for the dry and sweet sparkling wine types. The autochthonous Vernaccia Nera grape is the main ingredient of this wine and it may contain a maximum of 15% of other red grapes. Vernaccia di Serrapetrona is usually sipped with desserts as it enhances the flavours of dry baked goods and biscuits. Until the early 1900s, during rural festivals it was customary to prepare corn polenta seasoned with sapa and sparkling Vernaccia. Another favourite paring is with spicy and semi-hard cheeses with a medium fat content, but also with more substantial meats, boiled meats with sauce and fruit chutneys.
The production area includes all of the area of Serrapetrona and parts of the Belforte del Chienti and San Severino Marche areas. The maximum yield from the vineyard must not exceed 10 tons per hectare.
