The estate covers about 15 hectares, but the wines Fontefico arise from the selection of only 3 hectares, because every wine is a CRU and then coming from a specific vineyard, unique and unrepeatable. This is the basis of our production philosophy that focuses on the careful selection of every element of the wine from the vineyard just to get to the sorting of each bunch of grapes.
In 1996 Nicola and Emanuele Altieri gave life to Fontefico, an old estate of 15 hectares of vines from the beginning of the last century, located on the beautiful Gulf of Vasto, on the coast in Abruzzo. The two brothers began to experiment on different vineyards of the estate using micro-vinifications, always with the aim to obtain a pure fruit. After ten years of research and trials, they decided to bring the different expressions of Fontefico to the market, producing only 15,000 bottles, making wine from only 3 of the 15 hectares available. Fontefico is now an organic boutique winery.
