This recipe for chicken cooked in lots of dry, aromatic white wine comes from the region of Le Marche, where cooking and eating are always approached with joy and generosity. The wine used for this recipe would have to be the region’s most famous white wine: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Iesi, which has been carefully made in the same way for decades. Verdicchio can only be produced in a specific area of Le Marche, known as Castelli di Iesi, where the terroir, climate and constant ventilation provided by the sea breezes allow the grapes to develop in a very special way. This pale, straw-coloured wine with greenish tones is delicate and flowery, with a hint of almonds and a clean, slightly bitter finish.
