GEOGRAPHICAL PRODUCTION AREA: Our Valtènesi Fontanamora is named after the vineyard’s location, which is in the highest area of Moniga del Garda. The vineyard is well ventilated and with a splendid view of our lake. It has a perfect east/west exposure, which allows perfect exposure to sunlight from sunrise to sunset.
BRANCHING: Guyot trellis-training, Simonit pruning method. From 4 to 5 buds for each rod.



SEASON 2021: Thanks to a mild winter we had a cool and dry spring characterized by an early and vigorous sprouting. The heavy July rains slowed down the vegetative development of the plant, unlike previous vintages, avoiding an unfavorable harvest in August. The entire summer was characterized by favorable and balanced weather, without excessive heat peaks with good water presence. Throughout the harvest time, from the second decade of September to the last days, temperatures remained stable. Long periods without rain and high day/night temperature swings favored perfect phenolic ripening of the grapes, predicting one of the best vintages in terms of aromatic freshness and minerality.


VINIFICATION: In order to obtain an excellent wine different grapes are vinified separately thus creating different monovarietal bases. The grapes are carefully selected, collected, destemmed and then directly pumped in tanks. Among these we can find the Fenil Boi; its pressing process is done through the use of dry ice which allows optimal pressing in the absence of oxygen, preserving the noble and unique components of the terroir. After a short cryo-maceration, the grapes undergo a soft pressing. The flower must is kept at 10 C° and allowed to clarify naturally by static settling. Then the limpid is drawn off and fermented at a controlled temperature using specific yeasts. Once the different pure wines are obtained, we choose the blend that will lead us to the new Fontanamora vintage. The Vino Nuovo will age until February using cadenced batonnage, then is clarified and filtered for bottling. A short bottle aging follows before being sold.

SENSORY ANALYSIS: Light pink color with violet highlights. The nose is sharp: a hint of white-pulp peach develops towards agrumate, leaving hints of orange blossom and the typical peppery note of Groppello. In the mouth, you can enjoy the freshness of this wine with a marked minerality and sapidity taste for a unique juicy sensation.

FOOD PAIRINGS: Excellent pairing throughout all courses. Perfect for the Mediterranean cuisine, from lake fish to typical fried seafood. Suggested as aperitif on warm summer nights.
