Who we are
On the beautiful Marche hills at about 220mt above the sea, in the hinterland of Senigallia, there is a singular land. Calcareous clay soil that, combined with the saline air brought from the nearby sea, welcomes as its only mother land two native vines from which two exceptional wines are born.
The Lacrima di Morro d’Alba DOC and the Verdicchio del Castelli di Jesi DOC.
In this suggestive landscape Tenuta San Marcello was born from Massimo Palmieri.
What do we do?
Scents and history led Tenuta San Marcello to plant in 2008 on the four hectares adjacent to the estate the most characteristic and native vines of the area, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba and Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. This made it possible to produce 5 labels including Base, Superiore and Rosato, all vinified in purity. The winery has decided to expand its project by integrating a farmhouse, proposing an eco-sustainable approach to tourism in the area.
In the vineyards we use herbicides and chemical fertilizers; the winemaking process uses traditional methods with low environmental impact. The point of arrival is the integrated Bio-Dynamics. The result is real, pure wines, an original expression of the territory that sees them born.
The use of the most innovative winemaking techniques in the cellar allows us to follow a process of winemaking and aging in total harmony with traditional winemaking dynamics, respecting the times that nature requires to transform every must into wine, preserving and maximizing the aromas characteristic of Lacrima and Verdicchio.
Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature using a static cooling geothermal system, powered 100% from renewable sources.
From the heat of fermentation we heat the water for the family.

Project created by
Tenuta San Marcello
In pursuit of this dream, in 2008 we left Milan to install ourselves in the green heart of this beautiful region: the Marche. We fell in love with its gentle hills, its inhabitants and their carved faces, its rural culture and, above all, we fell in love with him, the Lacrima di Morro d'Alba! So we moved here to San Marcello, in the hinterland of Senigallia.
