Another amazing post about Le Marche and Sirolo by Ishita! Please make sure to check this out!:-)
What a gem!
If you are in Italy today, most probably you would escape the heat at the seaside, lakes or mountains. If you’d stay at home you will have a huge family party or enjoining the company of many friends. You’d probably make many toasts, watch a lot of fireworks and eventually attend a traditional Palio horse race in one of the many old towns around Italy.
Today is August 15th, not just another ordinary summer day, but THE summer day that everybody has been waiting for! Today is the “Ferragosto“, literally the ‘hottest’ holiday in Italy! So whatever you’ll be up to, just make sure to celebrate and have fun from day to night!
Talking about celebration and tradition in Italy, you’ll certainly have to raise your glass to toast and say “CinCin” at some point. That’s a sure thing.
As you know, you’ll have a wide choice of great wine in Le Marche, thanks to excellent vineyards and their amazing families who run the business generation after generation.
Today, in observance to the Italian Ferragosto holiday, I’d like to share with you the story of an amazing vineyard in Le Marche: the Santa Liberata vineyard and their Savini Family.
Please enjoy this interesting post from the WineLoversPage blog by our dear friend Neil Duarte and let’s start celebrating! Cheers!

How strange life is! I’m going to tell you about a surprising place in Le Marche, that I was able to discover thanks to some dear friends from Texas, Terry and Neil.
The Duartes have just come back from a travel in Le Marche and Terry, knowing that I would myself have been back to Italy soon, advised a visit to Montemarciano.
Here’s what she wrote to me:
…and so, I visited the Agostinellis!
I cannot tell you what I was most impressed with by this delightful family the other day.
Probably the taste of homemade ‘tagliatelle’ pasta, the same recipe my grandmother used to make every Sunday when my family got together. Then we used to spend all the day chatting and telling how life was going.
Or maybe something about the warm hospitality with which Dilva and Giancarlo welcome their guests. Or, even the extraordinary feeling of spending a few hours as we used to do long ago.
I have no doubt: besides the quietness and the beauty of the scenery surrounding “Casa Agostinelli” (aka, Agostinellis’ Home), besides the authentic taste of meals, it is the vibe you breath here that struck me most!
I felt like being back to the old days, when spending quality time together while sharing thoughts and opinions was one of the most enjoyable time!
Today my thanks go to the Duartes for the great advice and to the Agostinellis, who made me realise that certain values still exist.
