A selection from vine-stocks characterized by early ripening, in order to obtain an extraordinary polyphenolic maturation that makes the wine remarkably stable and capable to withstand a long aging. It’s also a delicate variety that suffers the excess of sunlight, this is the reason why during this experimentation we have defined a rigorous protocol for the correct management of vegetative growth of the plant and foliage.
A crag of calcareous rocks emerging abruptly from the valley opposite to the winery, a hill with steep sides, surrounded by the clay soils of the bottom. A very special combination, a unique microclimate that, thanks to the inclination, offers a better protection from the sunbeams. The synergy between all these elements is what gives origins to the Fondirò Cru.
A beautiful intense purplish red color. To the nose releases hints of fresh fruit among which plum and blueberry stand out. On the finish, light notes of aromatic vegetable, cinchona, walnut husk and pepper. On the palate it is powerful, vigorous with a dusty and long-lasting tannin. It retains an acidic note that guarantees its persistence.
