The grapes come from vineyards about 16 years old situated on the hills of Spello and Assisi at an altitude of 400-500 m . The permeable soil is of medium texture, tending to sandy, due to alterations in the sandstone of marine origin of the parent rock.

Harvesting started after 15th August with Chardonnay, and Grechetto followed in the first days of September.

Vinification: The grapes are vinified separately to encourage the best development of aromas of the two varieties. As soon as they are picked, they are transported to the winery and destemmed. At this stage they are chilled to a temperature of 8-10°, will the help of dry ice, and put in the press to macerate for a few hours. The rapid drop in temperature and cold mechanical processing of the skins ensures the best possible extraction of aromas, and by creating an oxygen free environment, the grapes are protected from oxidizing.  Alcoholic fermentation is in barriques of French oak with a capacity of 228 litres, where subsequently malolactic fermentation occurs.

The wine is refined in its own yeasts for several months, then matured in bottles for at least a year.

Tasting notes: straw yellow with green-gold reflections. Aromatic notes of honey, hazelnuts, butter, vanilla, with a subtle hint of pink grapefruit and tropical fruits.
Good density and persistence to the taste, with a rich balsamic finish.

A brief history: the first vintage of  Villa Fidelia Bianco was in 1990.
In 1998 we started collaborating with Riccardo Cotarella, who brought important modifications to the way the vineyards were run, and to the vinification process, thus ensuring that  Villa Fidelia Bianco also acquires its own identity.
The name Villa Fidelia® derives from a monumental villa of the 1800s situated about 500 metres from the winery, which represents the towns of Spello and Assisi from a historical and cultural point of view.

The Sportoletti family, who have been farmers for generations, have always been passionately dedicated to wine production. Towards the end of the 1970s, the brothers Ernesto and Remo, reaping the benefits of what their father Vittorio taught them, decided to dedicate themselves exclusively to wine production. In 1979 the first one thousand bottles were produced with their own label. Since then they have constantly been researching the perfect balance between innovation and tradition, using their skills to take the best advantage of the potential of the land-the hills between Spello and Assisi- where their 30 hectares of vineyard are situated. At present, five different  wines are produced: Assisi Rosso DOC, Assisi Grechetto DOC, Villa Fidelia Bianco IGT, Villa Fidelia Rosso IGT e Villa Fidelia Passito IGT. Over  the past ten years production has been stable at approximately  200,000 bottles per year. Since 1998 the company has had the excellent advice of the enologist and agronomist Riccardo Cotarella. On the borders of the national park of Monte Subasio, at about 500 metres above sea level, the company has approximately 2000 Moraiolo olive trees, the fruit of which produces an excellent Organic Extra virgin Olive Oil.
