Federico’s wine selections come from the Umbria region, where typicality, tradition and territory are the main factors in his wine choices. He looks for winemakers that accurately follow the production phase from the initial point in the countryside to the final bottling stage. He believes it is necessary to keep in mind the human relationship when selecting wines, this allows for a passionate and romantic selection.
He also loves the different facets the Veneto region offers, which are still very unknown in his opinion. He has an uncontrollable love for the traditional wines produced from the Sangiovese and Nebbiolo vines.
Wine is part of Federico’s life. As a result, choosing the wine to have is an instinctive decision, which is made instantly depending on his current mood.
Federico adores casual food that carries the traditions of its place of origin. The highlight of his meal is pairing casual food with wines from important areas (like Barolo, Brunello , Chianti and Amarone). It encourages the feeling that wine isn’t a status symbol nor a luxury product, but a farmer’s product, which comes from earth and is made with blood, sweat and tears.
