The quintessential pizza wine, this Montepulciano tastes of fresh Bing cherries and red plums, along with a more rustic earthiness—dried oregano, underbrush, and subtle cured meat flavor from the Syrah. Charming and medium-bodied, the wine is approachable, but also features a sandy tannic grip that gives it length and ageability.

Tomato-y pastas, bruschetta, prosciutto, hard cheeses, boardgames, late night pizzas.

In 1997, Cristina Fausti's dream of an organic, modern winery alongside her family’s Marche vineyard gave birth to Fausti. With winemaker Domenico D’Angelo sharing her reverence for the land, they founded the venture. Fausti's home in Fermo, rich with viticultural history, features vineyards beside a medieval tower adorned with the Matteucci family’s coat of arms—a nod to local grape-growing's heritage. Guided by principles of harmony, biodiversity, and nature's influence, Cristina and Domenico continue crafting wines that echo the region's story.
