Only in its second vintage of production, “Lapideus” is from an extremely old parcel of Trebbiano Spoletino in the village of Trevi that Giampiero acquired a few years back. It combines the savory, introspective character of the “Arboreus” with some of the more fruit-forward qualities of the “Santa Chiara”—in the case of this 2015, apricots and quince. Its acidity is vibrant and electric. Building on the work of his father—a through-and-through farmer whose Umbrian dialect is so thick as to be nearly incomprehensible to outsiders—Giampiero realized what made Paolo’s wines so special and built a philosophy around it. In a series of decades that saw Italian winegrowers embracing modern technology whole-hog, Giampiero—as co-founder of the ViniVeri (“Real Wine”) group—advocated for respectful vineyard work, biodiversity, a de-emphasis on technology in the cellar, non-engagement with professional critics, and an overall trust in old agrarian wisdom.
