Angelo Fongoli is a fourth generation winemaker at the his family farm in Montefalco. Since the early 2010’s, Angelo has reversed course, from what had been consolidated to a conventional, monoculture farm, back to the diverse farm it had been decades earlier. Of Fongoli's 40 hectares, about half are now planted to typical grape varieties of the region: trebbiano spoletino, grechetto, sangiovese, montepuliano, and sagrantino. The vines have been certified organic by Ecocert since 2013; and more recently, Angelo and his wife Letizia have begun the conversion to biodynamics. "Rossofongoli" is a well-structured blend of sangiovese and montepulciano that offers plenty of bright red fruit and zippy acidity and is a delicious snapshot of the evolving natural wine scene in Umbria. This is your go-to bottle for pizza, pasta and burgers. Serve cooler than room temp for best results.
