List of products by brand Azienda Agricola Fontefico

Fontefico is an organic boutique winery that always ensures an exceptional quality, with a strong focus on producing highly territorial wines from the local Montepulciano, Pecorino and Aglianico varieties. 

In 1996, the Altieri brothers bought an ancient estate located on the beautiful Gulf of Vasto, along the Abruzzo coast.The fresh winds from the sea provide the perfect climate, and while our estate covers about 15 hectares, the wines are selected from only 3 hectares. Each wine comes from a specific vineyard, for its own unique, and unrepeatable characteristics. This is the basis of our production philosophy, which focuses on the careful selection of each element of the wine: The right vineyard, for the right selection of each cluster of grapes.

Titinge Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC Riserva 2015 (75cl) - Fontefico

£21.99

An intense hue with smooth and elegant tannins, enhanced by nuances of chocolate.

Titinge Riserva is a pure Montepulciano d’Abruzzo red wine made from the oldest Fontefico vines. After 6 months of ageing in steel barrels, it is then moved to oak ones for a further 24 months of ageing in oak barrels and then another 12 in the bottle. The title is a play on words about the wine\'s exceptional colour intensity. Ti (you) + tinge (coloured) references its deep hue, which is all down to it being from the “Pàstino” vineyard. Their wines are all from a single cru, which means that each different type of wine comes from a single vineyard - a real rarity in the wine world.

Organic Pecorino Superiore DOC 2019 (75cl) - Fontefico

£13.90

A pleasant white wine with notes of basil, chamomile and apple.

Native to Abruzzo, Pecorino is a fresh and perfumed wine variety, that\'s both pleasant and complex at the same time. The nose opens with subtle notes of basil, chamomile flowers and apples, then continues with tones of citrus fruit - namely grapefruit and cedar - and a hint of mango.

Best paired with fish, poultry, pasta, fresh cheeses and desserts. Great also for an Italian Aperitivo!

Organic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2017 (75cl) - Fontefico

£13.90

One of the greatest wines of Centre-South Italy, this organic Montepulciano d\'Abruzzo is a full-bodied and round red wine.

In the region of Abruzzo, Montepulciano reigns as the uncrowned king of wine. Cultivated for centuries, it can age for a very long time, but it is also often appreciated for its fruity quality in its youth. This version is aged for about 12 months, and features black fruit on the nose, but on the mouth spices like black pepper as well as liquorice and roasted coffee.

Cerasuolo D'Abruzzo DOC Superiore DOC 2019 (75cl) - Fontefico

£12.99

A medium-bodied red wine with a cherry and almond aroma. Served cold for red wine drinkers in summer!

The Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is a cornerstone of the wine tradition of Abruzzo. It is not simply a red wine. It is a wine of unique qualities, one that well matches a cuisine that\'s delicately balanced between strong flavours and elegant taste. Fresh and crispy, the mouth is filled with a subtle but pleasing taste of blackcurrants and raspberries. An all-rounder, fit for every season, mood and taste.

Aglianico Terre di Chieti IGT "Costetoste" 2015 (75cl) - Fontefico

£22.49

Full-bodied, rich and complex red wine with plums and sour cherries.

A muscular, uncompromising wine with plenty of fruit and spices. Aglianico is a grape not typical of the Abruzzo region, but in Fontefico it takes on its own unique features: balsamic notes with hints of rosemary and lavender, spiced with essences of tobacco, carob and cloves.
