THE WINE

The Furore Bianco Fiorduva by Marisa Cuomo is obtained exclusively from overripe grapes that are harvested manually and arrive in the cellar intact. After soft pressing the must is fermented for about 3 months in oak barrels. Loaded yellow with gold reflections. The scent recalls apricot and broom flowers, with hints of exotic fruit. The taste is soft, dense and characterized by an important aromatic persistence of dried apricot, raisin and candied fruit. One of the most important whites in Italy, a wine to be collected jealously and uncorked on special occasions.

THE COMPANY

One hundred and thirty hectares, of which 36 are vineyards, spread among the clayey hills of Civitella d'Agliano and the Umbrian plain washed by the Tiber. We are located in the province of Viterbo, in an area dedicated to viticulture since 1292, as shown by some historical archival documents. The Mottura estate belongs to the family of the same name since 1933, and has been managed by Sergio Mottura since the 1960s, under whose guidance the company has undergone important renewal phases, both as regards the new replanting, and as regards the cellar activity. Following the rules of organic farming, the strenuous pursuit of the maximum ecological balance is one of the company's beliefs, and even in the winery the vinifications exclude any chemical intervention, are the most natural possible. Revaluing the native vines and carrying out practical experiments on the field, those of Sergio Mottura are rich, inebriating, persistent, vigorous and enveloping wines. Unique and excellent labels, starting from "Latour a Civitella", the first ever white wine from Lazio which has been awarded the recognition of the 3 glasses by the Gambero Rosso guide on the "Wines of Italy".

EXTREME WINES: FIORDUVA

The “Vini Estremi” (i.e., Extreme Wines) are heroic wines, children of the hard work, sweat and industriousness of man; they are often produced in unknown, geographically unbroken, at times impossible areas, and cultivated in tiny plots of land snatched away from the mountainside, the rocks and the sea.

From Trentino-Alto Adige to Sardinia, from Valle d'Aosta to the island of Pantelleria, from Valtellina to the Amalfi Coast, from the Cinque Terre to the slopes of Etna, the ancient Enotria boasts a myriad wines that have survived wars, plagues and the scourge of phylloxera.

Grape varieties which, thanks to the tenacity and passion of certain small-scale but great winegrowers, have been plucked out of oblivion and are still able to offer the followers of Bacchus the most extraordinary wines.
