History

In the past 1869,Count Buffarini decided to start the activity of Censi Buffarini farm. Ever since that time the farm has been carrying on the production of boh red and white wines from grapes, white (Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi), and red (Rosso Piceno and Rosso Conero); the latter come from Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes although at different rates. These wines, carefully selected and although products of Controlled Origin, were not bottled and sold directly by the company, mainly engaged in laying cereal, but were assigned to the various wineries in the area. These wines have allowed the company to achieve many awards in various regional and national competitions.

Since the 1980’s , the company decided to bottle and market the product, the result of over a century ‘s experience. The vineyards were replanted with new ones and, taking into account the evolving consumer demands, a great tradition native vine, the Lacrima Morra d’Alba was chosen .In addition to this quaint and historic red wine the production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, strongly linked to the territory wines with a strong historical identity ,was kept.The link between the Marche and the wine is lost in the mists of time: from the wine of Piceno recounted by the historian Polybius to mulled wine drunk by the emperors. Tradition has it that in 1167 Frederick Barbarossa during the siege of Ancona, chose the walls of Morro d’Alba as a home and shelter. The inhabitants were forced to give the emperor more expensive goods among which stood the precious grape juice of Morro d’Alba. There is plenty of historical evidence relating to the Verdicchio grapes, already appreciated in Roman times. Indeed it is said that the king of the Visigoths, Alaric, bound southwards to besiege Rome, crossing the territory that today corresponds to the Marche well loaded 40 mules with barrels containing this precious fruit.
The commitment and dedication that still today we put in the production of our wines is aimed at celebrating this heritage and we look to the future with enthusiasm, aware of the goodness of a character product, appreciated in Italy and abroad.
