We’ve snaffled a small parcel of this up and coming Super Tuscan which has quite rightly set the wine judges and critics alight.
This bonafide Tuscan beauty comes from Ridolfi, an organic-practicing producer which is well respected for producing prized Brunello wines in and around Montalcino.
Fiero was originally created as a bit of an experiment and is made up of 60% Merlot and 40% Sangiovese aged in small French barriques and large old Slavonian oak respectively. Hand harvesting and the use of wild yeasts add oodles more quality and character.
Drink now or age for up to 10 years. But at this price why wait!
