Cocciuto IGT Fontuccia IGT, Tasting notes:

Intense amber, golden reflections. Intense aromas of yellow and white fruit supported by floral notes. Pleasantly emerging is that iodized minerality that recalls the purity of fresh sea air. A barely noticeable tannic texture and great elegance, an unattainable white in terms of energy, complexity and charm.

Cocciuto IGT Fontuccia IGT

Cocciuto because this wine is the result of their stubbornness in combining past and future passion and innovation. The Ansonica from our vineyards, burnt by the sun and buffeted by the winds, vinified in amphora with long maceration on the skins – about 6 months – during which the terracotta allows constant micro-oxygenation, preserving the most authentic aromas.

 Fontuccia

Fontuccia dedicated everything to the island life and their passion is infinite, which viticulture today calls “heroic”. An archaic knowledge that they have chosen to protect, enhancing specificities and the beauty of their territory with this wine. They are one of the very few winegrowers on the island of Giglio. Heroic viticulture because their vineyards are small terraces on granite rocks overlooking the sea. The harvest is done by hand, as it was 80 years ago because even the use of tractors is impossible.

How does the shipping work?

After the order we prepare the shipping in 24-48 hours and delivery within Europe usually takes 3 to 5 days if all products are available.

What is a back-ordered product?

If a product is listed in the cart as "Available to order" or "backorder" the timing increases by 48h because we have to receive it from the manufacturer.

How do we ship the products?

Our priority is to pack and ship products as safely as possible. The bottles of wine and oil are shipped with special cardboard protections, there will be no breakages.

Do you use refrigerated transport?

No, all the products we sell are seasoned and under vaacum. They do not need to be transported at controlled temperature in a refrigerated truck. However, in the summer, for additional safety we can use dry ice and other protections to ensure an even more careful service.
