The Close Relationship With the Region
The Fontezoppa winery is located in the Marche region and is named after an old water source that used to flow where the vineyards are planted now. In Marche, almost everything from alleys, fields, valleys, ditches, etc. has a name that shows the close relationship of the people here with the region. The vineyards are worked upon by experts who use the proper mix of ancient traditions and modern winemaking skills to make wines with a strong personality and character.
The Perfect Balance Between the Richness of the Soil and the Microclimate
Between Serrapetrona and Civitanova Alta, there is a perfect balance between the richness of the soil and the microclimate that allows the growth of high-quality grapes for winemaking. Fontezoppa is right in the middle of the Blue Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, and this is the perfect place for it to make wines and mature them. The region has excellent winemaking wisdom and history attached to it. Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Maceratino, Pecorino, Incrocio Bruni, Serrapetrona and Passerina grape varietals are grown in their vineyards and thrive under the sea’s influence.
The Partnership Between Winemaker and Land
The Serrapetrona grape is an ancient varietal that attracts the attention of the Italian wine scene and is the base of experiments and rediscovery. Planting distances are low in the vineyards that help in containing the vegetation and increase the quality of the low yield. There is a healthy and lovable partnership between the winemakers and the land that makes it possible to make the best wines. Timely vinification and aging in the best woods make the wines unique.
