FONTEFICO

Is an organic boutique winery overlooking the Gulf of Vasto, in the southernmost part of the Abruzzo coast. Growing exclusively native grape varieties, such as Pecorino, Trebbiano and Montepulciano, 15 hectare of vineyards caressed by fresh and saline winds of the Adriatic Sea, making mineral and savory wines, with an uncommon structure and longevity. Each wine comes from a single vineyard, with unique and unrepeatable characteristics. Each vineyard therefore has its own identity which is found on the label of each wine.
So Pecorino Superiore is “La canaglia” (the rascal), because the vineyard is spiteful,

it does not allow itself to be tamed, but then it is forgiven by giving a superlative white wine. Trebbiano Superiore is the “Portarispetto” (bring respect), because this grape variety amazes and tells the land of Abruzzo with a special charm, when you treat its bunches with love and respect. And so on, each vineyard an identity and each wine a character. The peculiarity is that each of these protagonists, harvest after harvest, is drawn on the label in a different way, to tell an anecdote of the vintage. Hence putting together the bottles of the various vintages and the various wines, you can read the story of Fontefico. A story that speaks of terroir and authenticity.
