Our Falerio Avora is one of the wines of our heart, produced by our grandfather and then by our father.
Falerio is one of the oldest DOCs in the Marche region, produced in the provinces of Ascoli Piceno and Fermo has been for decades the only white DOC in the south of our region. From a blend of Pecorino, Passerina and Trebbiano, the grapes are harvested in our 40 and 60 yo vineyards , macerated on the skins for 8-18 h (times vary according to the vintage and variety) spontaneously fermented at controlled temperature with pied de cuve. After fermentation the wine ages sur lies for about 10 months with batonnage every 15 days.
The name Avora is a Piceno dialectal term that indicates a vineyard exposed to the Bora a wind that blows from the north then exposed to the north / north-east. And it is precisely on this side that we grow our white grapes, its characteristic is to always be very windy and to meet the sun's rays only until the early afternoon hours.
We find these characteristics of freshness in the wine which, even in the hottest years, always manages to express its freshness because of the proximity to the sea.
Avora is characterized both on the nose and in the mouth by herbaceous and citrus essence scents as well as by a good volume in the mouth due to the aging on the lees, batonnage and the vineyards old age. On the label “Sibilla” (detail) draw by Valeria Colonnella.
