This wine is deep, bright yellow in colour. The nose has intense fruit and floral notes with aromas of peach and orange blossom. On the palate this is a full-bodied, well-balanced wine with a long, lingering finish.
The fruit for this wine comes from a vineyard situated around the town of Ortona, on the Adriatic coast of the Abruzzo region. The vineyard sits at 230 - 425 meters above sea level, facing west and south west. Vines are planted on calcareous clay soils of a medium texture and trained on a pergola system.
The Fantini group was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim to produce top-quality wine from Abruzzo. The enterprise was so successful that the group decided to expand further south in Italy and also into Sicily. Today the Fantini group includes Cantina Diomede, Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Tufarello, Zabù and Cantina Atzei, among others. Fantini is their flagship winery, producing wines from vineyards based in the northern part of Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. The forward and accessible Sangiovese is a case in point. All the wines made from Montepulciano have the hallmark colour and intensity of this variety but with a balance and accessibility that is often lacking in wines from this region.
