The first vintage of Villa Fidelia Rosso dates back to 1990.
In 1998, Sportoletti winery started collaborating with Riccardo Cotarella who changed the way vineyards are managed in addition to wine making techniques and grape blends. Thanks to his expertise, Villa Fidelia Rosso acquires its own identity.
The name Villa Fidelia® refers to a nineteenth-century villa which is just 500 meters far from the winery and represents the town of Spello from the historical and cultural standpoints.
Intense dark red colour, with complex scents recalling blackberry jam, tobacco, spices, liquorice and chocolate.
Sumptuous and elegant to taste, with perfectly balanced silky tannins which clear the way for a rich and long finish.
Merlot 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Cabernet Franc 10%
The grapes stem from 17-18 year-old vineyards located on the hills of Spello and Assisi , at around 400 meters of altitude. The medium-textured soil is relatively loose, shallow, rich in high-porosity and high-permeability stones due to the alteration of the original sandstones.
Harvest started in early September for Merlot, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Once harvested, the grapes are moved to the winery and immediately de-stemmed. They are then macerated in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks for about 15 days, with regular pumpovers and delestage. The wine is then moved into 228-liter, French oak barriques where the malolactic fermentation and a 12-month refinement will occur. Further 24 moths of ageing in bottles will then follow.
