The Falerio is almost too good to be true: lively and full of fruit with more character than one has a right to expect at this price.

It’s lissom and affordable and looks to Trebbiano for inspiration but draws in local talent in the form of Pecorino (just like the cheese) and Passerina. Floral on the nose with apple and a faint herbal note the initial delicacy hides surprising body with healthy acidity and a bitter almond finish. This wine is producted from an ancient mixture of grapes from Trebbiano, Passerina and Pecorino. Its typical straw-yellow hue and delicate bouquet are due to the excellent position of the vineyards. Elegant and full-bodied, Falerio, serve it at 10°C.

Just north of the Abruzzo nestled in the rolling hills behind the walled city of Ascoli Piceno lies the estate of Saladini Pilastri. They are one of the oldest families in the Marche and their 200 hectares includes the usual viticultural suspects (Trebbiano, Sangiovese and Montepulciano) as well as a few Rhône rangers including Viognier and Syrah. All the vineyards are farmed organically which is no hardship given the hot, dry summers.

Food Match: It’s ideal with white meats or fish, and pasta, and also makes an excellent accompaniment to green olives, soups and delicate sauces.

Vinification: white with deburbage
Period of fermentation and maceration: 15 days – no maceration
