Situated in northern Umbria, 350 metres above sea level near the picturesque village of Monte Petriolo, Tiberi is a fourth generation family winery tended to by Cesare Tiberi and his grandchildren Federico and Beatrice. Spanning less than 4 hectares, Tiberi’s small plots celebrate native red and white grape varieties including Gamay del Trasimeno, Ciliegiolo, Grechetto, Trebbiano and San Colombana on soil that is mostly rocky schist and brushed by dry Mediterranean winds. This link to the past – through the untouched soils and Cesare, who has always lived and worked in the village – makes for very rustic wines with soul.
