Giampiero acquired a parcel of 80-year-old Trebbiano Spoletino in the town of Pigge di Trevi several years back and has added this tremendous white wine to his line up. “Lapideus” spent a lengthy 35 days on it skins after pressing, followed by 210 additional days on the gross lees. This orange wine has a deep amber color and aromas of apricot, cloves and candied ginger. With mild tannins and great structure this is a fine match for the table and could easily take the place of red wine alongside venison, salmon, or pork.
