Vine varieties and CDOs

Words can hardly describe the experience of wine tasting. That is why we let our wines tell their own stories on our behalf, stories of vineyards tilled by the expert hands of indefatigable growers, stories of passion and hard work to produce the best from our terrains, for our customers to enjoy a unique experience with every sip of our wines.

The Terracruda winery produces quality wines exclusively made from indigenous grape varieties. A low yield per hectare, a four-time handpicking method, the prompt transport of grapes to the winery, in-winery sorting operations and temperature control in the fermentation phase are all part of our philosophy. Our wines bear the signature of our eminent oenologist Giancarlo Soverchia.

Bianchello del Metauro Doc


This wine is produced from the Bianchello grape variety, an old clone of the Trebbiano. Its origin is dateless. The historian Tacito attributed to it a pivotal role in the famous battle of the Metaurus, fought in 207 B.C. close to the Metaurus river. The Romans could easily defeat the Carthaginians led by Hasdrubal, whose troops had indulged into too much drinking of the Bianchello. Find out more

Aleatico Pergola Doc


This wine is produced from a Aleatico variety grown since ancient times in the area of the Pergola village. Wines made from this variety are complex in bouquet and taste. This is the youngest of the three CDOs of the Pesaro-Urbino province and is sold in the three versions of Rosato, Rosso and Aleatico Superiore. Find out more

Sangiovese Colli Pesaresi


The Sangiovese needs no presentation. It is among the most popular wines in the Italian peninsula and the hills of the Marches, where this wine has a smell and taste of its own, are no exception.



Spumante Rosato


Sparkling wines are produced with the Charmat or Martinotti method by thermally controlled secondary fermentation in steel vats extolling the fruitiness and freshness and the bouquet of the variety of origin.





The “Visciola” calls to mind an old tradition of the Montefeltro area, in which this sour cherry wine was produced as far back as at the age of Federico Da Montefeltro. The story goes that the in the fifteenth century the Duke of Urbino “… drank no wine that was not made with cherries…”. And the cherries of the story are nothing but the wild cherries spontaneously growing in the Urbino inland. It can perfectly be matched to chocolate. Another specialty named Passito, instead, is produced from Bianchello grapes left to naturally wither on trellises for a few months.

Uvaggi riscoperti


Guess what? A magic land invariably bears unusual magic fruits that need not be lost. That’s the idea behind the project named “Uvaggi reliquia” (precious vine varieties). Old indigenous cultivars that had almost totally disappeared were replanted after a careful research activity conducted in partnership with the University of Ancona. Unblended wines were produced from these varieties as a tribute to the glorious past of this land. We won this challenge through the foresight and vision of our oenologist Giancarlo Soverchia and our unswerving devotion to indigenous varieties.
