Fontenuovo

The verdicchio of the sea


Made from organic grapes.

Our vineyard of Verdicchio is situated at just 1000 meters of the Adriatic coast.

The clay is characterizing the soil our vines are sinking their roots into.

Fontenuovo tells the story of the great strength of the Verdicchio, its typical big structure and longevity on these difficult, softened by the sea, soils.

Thanks to the long cold maceration of the grapes in the Ganimede tanks we are able to fully seize this strength.

Our wine making method is completed with indigenous yeasts fermentation at controlled temperature. The long bâtonnages on fine lies enriches the identity of the Verdicchio, which finds in this way a new dimension of quality , pleasantness and drinkability.

The long refinement in the tanks and than in bottle gives to our FonteNuovo complexity and balance in a rich bouquet of sea and land nuances, strength and longevity.
