Fonterenza

The Campi Di Fontereza estate began with the purchase of 40 hectares of land, mostly in the Montalcino area, and with the passion of two sisters Margherita and Francesca Padovani for this area and this terroir. 

The predominant exposition is South/Southwest. The growth system varies from 2,5 metres x 1 to 2,20 x 80. The growth system is “guyot” bordolese and “cordone speronato:” All operations in the vineyards are performed by hand by the sisters in person.

The yield per hectare is very limited. It varies from year to year but is always much lower than the yield that is consented according to the DOCG regulations.

The work in the vines and the cellar operations take place according to biodynamic rhythms. In order to combat diseases in the vines, only sulphur, copper and plant extracts are used. The land is fertilised by ploughing in leguminous plants and, occasionally, with manure from organically certified cattle breeders. Selected yeasts are not used for fermentation.

The cellar is located at the farmhouse and is divided between vinification and ageing. During the fermentation of Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino and Lupo di Fonterenza Slavonian oak truncated cone shaped fermentation vats or wooden 5 hl containers are used.
