About The Producer, Fontuccia :
La Fontuccia takes its name from the sunny plot of land of their first vineyard.
Here their story began, and here the first bottle of Senti Oh!
Since 2009, the lands of the island of lily have been able to donate unique wines for grace and power and the Ansonica grape that they cultivate, rooted in the lily since ancient times, represents the synthesis of millenary stories and traditions.
Their vineyards are small terraces of dry stone walls between the granite rocks overlooking the sea, can only be reached on foot with steep paths, the harvest is only manual, the yields are low but the grapes are very rich in perfumes. Thus were born our wines, which grow exclusively in their own vineyards scattered on the island in unique and suitable locations: Fontuccia, Cape ’Rosso, Olivello, Franco and our latest Le Grotte vineyard.
Their wines have a beautiful authentic story to tell.
