Fontevecchia is our flagship wine, one of the 3 wines produced since the very beginning, with the first vintage dating back to 1995.

 

The name means “old spring”, a very small creek that delimitates the right side of our property. The iconic “Woman of Bacchus” that can be seen on the label is taken from a painting that the important local artist Bruno d’Arcevia donated to the founder at the time he opened the winery. 

 

Verdicchio is one of the noble grapes of Italy, often called “the Chablis of Italy” (cit. Jansis Robinson) due to its minerality, complexity and great ageing potential, in some cases up to 25 years.
