The grapes of this Dolceto come from the Langhe area, of Piedmont. This area is among the most suitable to produce Dolcetto, both due
to the soil and the geologic composition of the land in addition to the exposure of the selected vineyards. The grapes are de-stemmed prior to pressing. The must is later pumped into stainless steel containers where the open tank fermentation takes place at about 26oC. Finally the wine continues its evolution as the natural grape sugars balance with clean crisp acidity.
In 1880, Pietro Fiore founded the Fiore winery in northeastern Piedmont near the small town of Gattinara, over time producing wines that established a respected reputation. In similar fashion, Nicolao Manfredi pioneered his own winery in the town of Farigliano situated in the Dolcetto zone. When the two families came together in 1990, their mission was to honor their collective heritage in producing traditional wines of Piedmont, focusing
on those of Dolcetto and Moscato d’Asti. Today, as it was in the beginning, the wines of Umberto Fiore provide a true and a pure expression of this great Italian wine region.
