Alberico Rosso Fattoria di Fiorano 2012

“Alberico is dedicated to my grandfather, who founded and believed in this special ‘farm’, which sits inside the city limits of Rome.” Alessia Antinori, October 2017. These wines are brilliant ambassadors for Lazio. The red is a Cabernet-Merlot blend, redolent of Bordeaux, with the heightened fruit weight of its more southerly origin and a charge of mineral tension. The produce of little more than eight rows of vines, planted on volcanic soils created by an ancient lava flow, this is a gem of a property.2011 was the second harvest of Alberico Rosso since Alessia Antinori’s revival of this tiny historic vineyard just four rows of Merlot and four of Cabernet Sauvignon.

"A ruby-coloured core with a little bricking towards the edges. Lifted black cherry aromas greet you on the nose, with a little quince and exotic fruit. The palate reverberates with energy on the attack, which then melds and resolves into a gentle, red-fruited mid-palate, with tomato leaf, herbs and a touch of powdery chocolate. Firm but integrated tannins provide structure. This will improve with a few years of bottle age, but it is rather tempting to drink it now!"
