Esino is a wine appellation in the central part of the Marche region of Italy near the city of Ancona. It is a relatively young appellation having gained DOC status in 1995.
The appellation covers both white wine made primarily from the Verdicchio grape (Esino Bianco) and red wine made primarily from the Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes (Esino Rosso).
The wines are usually served young and they are usually lower in alcohol than other similar wines and are valued for freshness and for pairing with food.
Other appellations in the Marche region are:
  Bianchello del Metauro
Colli Maceratesi
Colli Pesaresi
Falerio dei Colli Ascolani
Lacrima di Morro d'Alba
Offida Passerina
Offida Pecorino
Offida Rosso
Rosso Conero
Rosso Piceno
Terreni di San Severino
Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi
Verdicchio di Matelica
Vernaccia di Serrapetrona
