Elisabetta's vineyards are situated on some of the oldest rock in Italy, and she claims that vines were first planted here by the Etruscans in the 7th century BC. Everything is organic at the estate and 'Fiore' is made from 100% Vernaccia - Tuscany's premier white grape - from free-run must before the grapes are pressed. The resulting wine is then kept on the lees for much longer than normal giving up an elegant and delicately balanced wine.

A very pale lemon-yellow in the glass, this wine has an unusual nose of cucumber, lemon and and white flowers. In the mouth the wine is vibrant, bright and crisp with a stony minerality accompanied by flavours of green apple and lemongrass. Perfectly balanced, with a delicate acidity and a clean finish. Great with steamed asparagus, swordfish steak or Pecorino cheese.
