Fontezoppa Civitanova Marche

...where land meets the sea

Fontezoppa is the name of an ancient water source which flowed where today the rows of vines run.

Everything in Le Marche has a name, valleys, ditches, fields and alleys; a sign of the passage of man and of an intense relationship with the land. It is from the land that we must start to tell the story of Cantine Fontezoppa.

A variety of vines handed over to expert hands and ancient techniques meet here the generosity of the soil and the goodness of the air. The result is a wine with a strong personality, produced among green hills that look towards the sea, and the mountains.

In Civitanova Alta and Serrapetrona we have found the right balance between climatic conditions and richness of the soil, it is therefore in the area between the Adriatic Sea and Monti Azzurri that Cantine Fontezoppa cultivates and ages their best wines.

Places cannot exist without history, so this land has been chosen for the load of tradition, passion and wisdom that distinguishes it.

Wine making is an ancient art, which requires knowledge and consolidated techniques, time and care. Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet, but also Maceratino (Ribona), Incrocio Bruni, Pecorino, Passerina are the vines planted around Civitanova Alta, under the beneficial influence of the sea.

Fontezoppa Serrapetrona

...the mountains

By the slopes of the Monti Azzurri there are the Vernaccia Nera, Pinot Noir and Sangiovese vineyards.

Serrapetrona has always been the land of Vernaccia, a grape of ancient spices capable of drawing the attention of the national enological scene and today at the center of rediscoveries and experiments.

With thick planting patterns it is possible to contain vegetation, thus enhancing the low yields per vine and making precious every single bunch.

In the plurality of Fontezoppa’s labels, a place of honor is reserved to Morò, result of a meticulous selection of grapes and of a careful attention to nuances, in order to offer unique sensations to the palate, especially in combination with traditional dishes.

It is with association with the land that the secret of good wine is hidden, an alliance between territory and tradition which Marche region cannot do without. A vinification process which is careful and respectful of time, an aging process which takes place in the best woods and respecting the original characteristics of the product.
A heritage made of testimonies of the past and quality of work that is renewed inside Cantine Fontezoppa.
