Rosso Piceno Superiore “Terre di Giobbe” is an intense, concentrated and harmonic wine from Marche region, aged in steel tanks and for 12 months in barriques. The aromatic profile is rich and Mediterranean, with scents of red flowers and fruits, toasted spices, Mediterranean scrub and underbush. On the palate it is smooth and velvety, dense and structured.
Why have we selected this wine?
Terre di Giobbe comes from 20 year old vines in a clay and sandy soil at 245 meters above sea level. The wine area is the scenic hills around Piceno. Despite being an easy drinking wine, complexity is given by the unique climatic conditions to which the vineyards are exposed to: Mediterranean sea breeze, hot sun and complex soil. The Fiorano "non-intervention" and organic winemaking philosophy allows this wine to reflect all the scents and the tastes from the Piceno DOC.
The family: 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, in the south of the Marche. The area is particularly renowned for the high quality of its 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 is.
