Historical references...

The Barbolano comes from a place that best expresses the typical Marche landscape: the medium hill that slopes gently down to the sea, a mosaic of cultivated land, framed by many vineyards and with some scattered farmhouse that seems to be brought by a skilled hand . This robust wine has its roots in the most remote antiquity, but it is only with the Roman age that it enters history. Plino the Elder (1st century AD) transmitted to us the appreciation that the Romans had for the quality of the Picene grapes and in particular those of this small area (ager palmensis). The resulting wine was successfully exported to various parts of the Empire and was highly sought after.
The flourishing ancient “industry” of wine is also testified by various amphorary material dating back to the second half of the 1st century. BC, ie at the time of Caesar and Augustus, and on the neck of a series of these amphorae, we can find a significant stamp: BARBUL// C. IVL. POLY which stands for Barbul(ae) / C(ai) lul(i) Poly.
