Sipping this Pistarello is like a breath of autumn air on a summer breeze, it’s super refreshing but rustic, too - rustic in a modern way, like Tiberi does so well. -

This orange wine is a new one from Tiberi and sees the family try their hand at a light, bright, juicy alternative orange to the more serious one made by grandfather Cesare -NBW

 

Situated in northern Umbria, 350 metres above sea level near the picturesque village of Monte Petriolo, Tiberi is a fourth generation family winery tended to by Cesare Tiberi and his grandchildren Federico and Beatrice. Spanning less than 4 hectares, Tiberi’s small plots celebrate native red and white grape varieties including Gamay del Trasimeno, Ciliegiolo, Grechetto, Trebbiano and San Colombana on soil that is mostly rocky schist and brushed by dry Mediterranean winds. This link to the past – through the untouched soils and Cesare, who has always lived and worked in the village – makes for very rustic wines with soul. In 2015, Federico and Beatrice, with the help of Cesare and their neighbouring winemaker Danilo Marcucci, brought Tiberi into the modern age by selling their wines beyond just the local village. The experiment paid off and now they are widely considered to be ‘ones to watch’ in the region, with every vintage better than the last.
