Overview of the Wine
Fantinel was founded in 1969, when restaurateur and hotelier, Paron Mario Fantinel, acquired his first vineyards in the Collio area of northern Friuli. With now the third generation represented by Marco, Stefano, and Mariaelena, what started as a small agricultural company has become an internationally prestigious winery and ambassador of Friulian wine-making throughout the world. The philosophy of Fantinel is to employ passion, tradition, and innovation through a close bond with the origins and ancestral wisdom of Friuli, producing wines that embrace excellence and offer real emotions that convey the authenticity of the land.
Fantinel comprises a stunning lineup: beautiful sparkling wines, Borgo Tesis, the distinct estate of Tenuta Sant’Helena, and the crown jewel La Roncaia. Gaining success in over 90 countries at top-level, prestigious restaurants and specialized shops, Fantinel’s rapidly growing success is confirmed by remarkable reviews received by international press.
With over 300 hectares of vineyards divided into the renowned DOC Grave, Prosecco, and Collio zones, these unique terroirs and privileged areas with microclimates are ideal for the best maturation of the fruits and the highest expression of each vine variety, especially the valuable indigenous grapes. In addition, the Fantinel concept of wine-making includes the investments in cutting-edge technological solutions bolstering production with an environmentally sustainable approach — from the revolutionary fertilisation-irrigation system and the clonal selections in laboratory, to the advanced system of thermoregulation of steel tanks and the immense propriety of precious wood barrels. Fantinel’s “a-viticulture” features vines that grow according to natural rhythms, on the basis of the respect of the plant vegetative cycle and balance, giving birth to rich fruits and, naturally, to majestic wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Delicately coppery, bright white. The nose reveals a mixture of floral fragrances. Zesty mouthfeel and a good body. This refined wine displays balance and authenticity, like the land of its origin.
