Urbino and the Metauro

This name refers to ancient history, rooted in the early Second century B.C. when the Carthaginian army, led by Hasdrubal, was ambushed and beaten during the famous battle of Metauro by the Roman legions commanded by Caius Claudius Nero.

The wine-making area is limited, and includes both towns in the middle and lower Metauro, such as Fano, Cartoceto, Fossombrone, Mondavio, part of the municipalities of Urbino and Fermignano, and other towns in the Metauro and Montefeltro valleys.

It is said that the nature and history of this area in the northern Marche makes the flavour of these excellent wines truly unique.
