He met with Slow Food in the mid Nineties, contributing to the wine tastings for a wine guide jointly edited by Slow Food Press and Gambero Rosso, namely Guida ai Vini d’Italia, of which he subsequently became the supervisor for the Italian regions Emilia Romagna and Marche.
He writes for Slow Food Press since 2002, for whom he published the book Guida ai Vitigni d’Italia. He has taught at the Università di Scienze Gastronomiche of Pollenzo 2008/09.
Currently Fabio, jointly with Giancarlo Gariglio, is the contributing editor of Slow Wine, the guide to Italian vineyards and wines yearly released by Slow Food Press since 2010. He has also published for Slow Food Press two single-subject books: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, un Grande Vino, and Il Piceno e il Pecorino.
