Curiosity

I like to think of my grandparents of Montefalco cadence in pronouncing the name of this wine they loved so much.”

The name Fontiola is a tribute to Ilaria’s grandparents and the dialect of the Montefalco areas. Since she was a child she had heard them talk about their land called “Fundiola”, without ever wondering what the origin of this name was. Her father then explained to her that this name derives from a source that was located on that land, precisely, “Fonte Viola”.

Author Suggestion

“For my family the passito has always been the wine of sharing and celebration.” Ilaria Cocco

Wine Tips

The Sagrantino grape has the characteristic of containing in its thick skin a quantity of tannins that are among the most important in the world, so as to make this vine particularly suitable for the production of wines for aging. Sagrantino is also a grape that lends itself to drying to give sweet wines and Sagrantino is born just like that, in the passita version, mainly used in liturgical functions, hence its name Sagrantino, connected to a dimension, for precisely, sacral.

Sagrantino passito wine is a must wine of the popular tradition of this handkerchief of Umbria, always consumed on Easter day, accompanied by the typical Umbrian Easter breakfast based on cheesecake, cold cuts and cold cuts and hard boiled eggs. Moving accompanied with grilled lamb.
