Fontegalli

“Fontegalli is an exception for the Estate, it’s our only red wine without Sangiovese grapes. It’s the preferred wine of my father, Nonno. We chose a purple label to denote its grandeur”

" The Aristocrat "

Fontegalli is the name of the well where we extract our water. Like water, the source of life and an element of absolute quality, this wine represents our quest for purity and quality, without compromise nor limitations. The result is a wine with great elegance and intensity, capable of enthralling even the most discerning palate.

Climatic conditions
The 2013 vintage was impacted by a harsh winter with alternating sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls. The spring was cool and rainy. However, despite a cool summer overall compared to previous seasons, a few heat spikes boosted the Sangiovese veraison period. Finally, the fluctuations in daytime and night-time temperatures favoured a progressive ripening phase.

Tasting notes
Nose: sweet, ripe fruit
Palate: eucalyptus

Climatic conditions
In 2014, the relatively warm winter weather and the mild spring were the triggers for an early budding phase. However, the rainfall spread throughout the winter period rebalanced the vegetative cycle to allow the summer to accomplish its task gently: veraison. Thus, the bunches were able to mature progressively for an optimal harvest.

Tasting notes
Nose: fresh, herbaceous
Palate: nice silkiness in the mouth, pleasant freshness

Production
2730 bottles produced
200 magnums produced

Climatic conditions
The winter of 2015 came later in our region, thus slowing down the vegetative awakening of the vines and the crying period by about ten days. Spring came at the right time, offering the vineyards a flowering period punctuated by sunny days and some rainfall. Finally, the long summer, with high temperatures exceeding 30°C and ideal climatic conditions, gave our grapes an ideal ripening.

Tasting notes
Nose: elegant notes of intense chocolate and spices
Palate: dense, rich and complex, long in the mouth, pleasant density
Comments: definite ageing potential

Climatic conditions
The 2016 vintage is a great year that the winegrowers of our region still remember. In addition to having benefited from a late spring, it was mainly the abundant rainfall during the flowering period that contributed to the success of this season. The warm, sunny summer allowed the grape varieties to mature earlier, resulting in an optimal harvest, and in particular a Sangiovese crop of exceptional quality.

Tasting notes
Nose: opulent and very ripe fruit
Palate: nice balance between freshness and power, liquorice.
