This delightful Sangiovese is youthful and exciting. A fragrant, red-fruited scent prefaces a fairly wild and dramatic flowering on the palate. Pairing this wine with food will delivery more body to the palate. The tasting delivers an aromatic explosion of fresh berries and it ends with a dry and lightly savoury finish.
Why have we selected this wine?
Sangiovese is the king of the Italian grapes. It grows in different parts of Italy, adapting itself and expressing accordingly to the wine area. Here in Offida, the Sangiovese shows itself in a more fresh berries and aromatic version in comparison with Toscany or Umbria. It is perfect for fresh summer evenings and for grills. The organic style of production of this wine, enhance even better the characteristics of this grape and terroir. Awarded by Gambero Rosso as one of the best Sangiovese in Italy in their Bere Bene guide (their annual guide to the best wines for a fair price).
Paola and Paolo
The Fiorano Organic Winery is an organic farm that makes respect for nature its main point. Located in Cossignano, in the heart of the province of Ascoli Piceno, south of the Marche region. The area is particularly renowned for its high quality wines. A small area of municipalities in the Piceno area, including Cossignano, is the elective production area of the Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC and the Offida Pecorino DOCG. The winery is run by Paolo Beretta (formerly a dentist) and Paola Massi (a research pharmacologist) one day decided to follow their heart and started pursuing the life of their dreams. Their wines exemplify perfectly the virtues of small-scale - they own just 10 hectares of vines - and organic cultivation. All exhibit an entrancing purity of fruit, and all are bottled with minimal sulphur levels.
Paolo and Paola bought the farm in 1991, and consider their grass-covered vineyards, a beautiful and unique natural amphitheatre which lies 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. This micro-climate makes Paola and Paolo's wines unique, as the Offida DOCG wine region itself.
