TIPICAL PRODUCT AND SHOPPING
Il vino cotto
The taste of ancient traditions
Loro Piceno is the capital of vino cotto, a very peculiar product literally meaning “cooked wine”. Inside the noble palaces in the town centre (as well as at Villa Anitori) you can still find an interesting architecture of structures that were functional to pressing grapes and boiling wine.
The locals are very proud of their own “vino cotto” as every barrel keeps the nuances and the taste that a particular producer obtained through its own ability and secrets passed on to every generation.
Vino cotto is a typical wine of this area traditionally concentrated in a very narrow area in the province of Macerata and partially in that of Fermo. Strong and sweet, amber in colour, with an intense fruits scent. The production technique dates back to the Piceni who in turn took it from the Greek and hasn’t chnged much since then. Plauto in 191 b.C. describes vino cotto as one of the best beverages to be served at a banquet. In the town of Loro Piceno a permanent exhibition is dedicated to the tools and techniques used in the making of vino cotto and a small museum is located in an evocative location next to the porch of San Francesco church
Land of artisans and luxury crafts
Le Marche is among the leading manufacturing regions in Italy, especially concerning clothing, shoes and fashion accessories. Craftsmen tradition has always been widespread withn its population and has evolved into a high end manufacturing industry.
The tiny little village of Loro Piceno is close to several productive districts, each unique for their peculiar crafts and it is indeed possible to shop around both at some artisanal workshops and at the factory outlets of well known fashion and design brands. Macerata and Fermo provinces are primarily known for shoes (Tod’s, Prada, Loriblu, Santoni, Fornarina, Paciotti, Fabi, Bikkembergs, NeroGiardini), jewels (Brosway) and fashion accessories, like hats and knitwear.
