Crushed & Cured

Fiorano, Terre di Giobbe, Rosso Piceno Superiore, 2018


80% Montepulciano and 20% Sangiovese, aged in old French oak barrels. By far the best vintage we have ever tasted: rich and fleshy, with vigorous raspberry, blueberry and blackcurrant flavours, but also aromatic. Intense without being overpowering. 

This wines exemplify perfectly the virtues of small-scale - just 5 hectares of vines - organic cultivation. All exhibit an entrancing purity of fruit, and all are bottled with minimal sulphur levels. The grass-covered vineyards lie in a special spot: about 250-350 metres up on the eastern side of the Apennines, about 15 kms. from the Adriatic, surrounded by their own olive groves, on a mix of clay, limestone and sand.
