Fiorano, Terre di Giobbe, Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC 2013

In Stock Now!

Rosso Piceno Superiore comes from a group of 13 villages near Ascoli Piceno. This example is from 80% Montepulciano and 20% Sangiovese, aged in old French oak barrels. Deep hue. Interesting scent - Paola says "balsamic" and that’s accurate, showing ripeness and meatiness. This is a big wine, fleshy and expansive, but it has the fresh cut of blackberry and blackcurrants too. Long finish. One would drink it there with the wild boar of Norcia - but anything slow cooked would be as good here, for example belly of pork. Now-2019

We started working with Paolo Beretta and Paola Massi, introducing their wines to this country a year ago, with immediate success, and we have added their top red, Ser Balduzio, this year. 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: 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.
