Background

Fontezoppa is the name of an ancient spring which flowed where the our vineyards are today. Everything in Marche has a name, the valleys, ditches, fields and alleys; a sign of the passing of man and a close tie to the land. And it is from the land that we start to tell you about Cantine Fontezoppa. Vine varieties placed in the hands of experts and the use of ancient methods are blessed here by the generosity of the land and uncontaminated air. The result is a wine with a strong personality, produced on the green hillsides, some facing the sea and others the mountains. The balance between climatic conditions and rich land in Civitanova Alta and Serrapetrona is perfect, and it is in the area between the Adriatic Sea and the Azzurri Mountains that Cantine Fontezoppa grows and ages its best wines.

Tasting Notes

Hand-picked Verdicchio grapes. Intense straw yellow with tinges of green, luminous. To the nose denotes freshness accompanied by a pleasant suggestion of peach, broom flowers, jasmine and pistachio. In the mouth great balance with floreal and fruity notes that blend with minerality, providing a fresh and tantalising wine with a long and engaging finish. Good accompaniment for spaghetti with seafood or oven roast rabbit.
