Grape: Grechetto 100%
Fiero Bianco is an orange wine produced in Umbria region, near by the village of Sant'Enea, 15 min drive south of Perugia.
Fiero Bianco is the result of a careful work done by Carlo Tabarrini,

Vintage 2018 was quite hot with a small amount of rain from June to September.
Thanks to a quite temperature excursion from day to night, this vintage as given to this wine a great balance between freshness and body.

Then ages for 4 months in steel tank (80%) and 20% barrique bent by steam.
No filtration and no clarification.
Great ageing potentials (up to 10 years)
