Fiorano

Cossignano, Marche, Italy

We started working with Paolo Beretta (formerly a dentist) and Paola Massi (a research pharmacologist) in 2015, with immediate success.

Their wines exemplify perfectly the virtues of small-scale - they tend just 10 hectares of vines - organic cultivation. All exhibit an entrancing purity of fruit, and all are bottled with minimal sulphur...

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine!

Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic.

Fiorano, I Paoli Sangiovese, Marche IGT, 2019

This delightful Sangiovese is Fiorano's principal wine, now renamed I Paoli after the owners Paolo Beretta and Paola Massi. The 2019 vintage is youthful and exciting. A fragrant, red-fruited scent prefaces a fairly wild and dramatic flowering on the palate. Unlike previous vintages this would definitely benefit from drinking with food - for example any pork dishes or tomato based pasta - as it seems to show more mass; delivers an aromatic expansiveness; and then a dry, lightly savoury finish. Raspberry and muilberry fruit. Terrific at this price. Now-2023

"Full bottle just 1,117 g. Certified organic. Most grapes grown in an amphitheatre about 250–350 m up on the eastern side of the Apennines, about 15 km from the Adriatic.
Bright mid crimson. Fairly light nose of tangy Sangiovese with nicely balanced fruit that's sweeter than many a Tuscan example. Very approachable and easy to like. In their online description of this wine, SSV counsel serving it with food but I think it would be fine to drink without food. QGV 16/20, Drink 2020-2023, Jancis Robinson, October 2021

 

We started working with Paolo Beretta and Paola Massi, (he formerly a dentist and she a research pharmacologist) introducing their wines to this country in 2015, with immediate success. Their wines exemplify perfectly the virtues of small-scale - they tend just 5 hectares of vines - organic cultivation. All exhibit an entrancing purity of fruit, and all are bottled with minimal sulphur levels. They consider their grass-covered vineyards lie in a special spot: mainly in an amphitheatre about 250-350 metres up on the eastern side of the Apennines, about 15 kms. from the Adriatic, beside their own olive groves, on a mix of clay, limestone and sand. And in case you plan a vist to the Marche the hospitality at their bed and breakfast is outstanding.

SVS is one of the nicest merchants to deal with. Fabulous choices of producer and wines, friendly cheerful service, keen prices and boundless enthusiasm. Top wine critics (eg Jancis Robinson) often rave about the SVS portfolio of wines. Simon and his team also have a 'philanthropic' soft spot for South African wines where the whole wine trade suffered not just an export ban on wine but a domestic one too for a while. You cannot go wrong with any wine in the portfolio. Buy with confidence.

I look to a wine merchant to explore wine regions in person and discover excellent producers. Then of course to put good information on their web site, to provide accessible and friendly advice and to make the buying process easy and reliable. SVS ticks all these boxes. I am a very satisfied customer.
