Villa Fidelia Bianco
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.
