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 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.
