2010 Roccafiore "Fiorfiore"

SKU #1090494

Located in Umbria, Roccafiore farms their eleven hectares of vineyards organically and produces outstanding red and white wines according to traditional methods that have been passed down through generations, with only a few modern updates. The 2010 Fiorfiore Bianco is 100% Grechetto, the white varietal native to Umbria and specifically to the vineyards surrounding Roccafiore. A controlled fermentation in stainless steel was followed by ageing for one year in large Slavonian oak barrels prior to bottling, with additional ageing in bottle. It is full and lush, exhibiting ripe pineapple, bakend apple, and scented wildflower aromas and flavors, with a distinctive floral and spice complexity. The palate is fleshy and broad, with ample body and balanced acidity, making it a lovely choice to serve with salads, white meats, and creamy cheeses.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
