Sportoletti Villa Fidelia Rosso 2016
Although the Sportoletti family has always been involved in agriculture, the decision to give special consideration to the delightful countryside between Spello and Assisi through its wines was taken just over thirty years ago by the brothers, Ernesto and Remo. In 1979, the winery released its first bottles, but it wasn't until 1998, with the collaboration of Ricardo Cottarella, that important changes were introduced regarding the density and yield of the vines, leading the company to dedicate itself to the production of superior quality wines.
Villa Fidelia Rosso is undoubtedly the winery's flagship, a Bordeaux-style wine made from 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. The first variety, sourced from clones selected from an old vineyard, fifty years of age, endows the wine with a special complexity, roundness and smoothness.
Visually a compact ruby-red colour, on the nose it appears elegant, with aromas that fuse splendidly, giving way to a harmonious ensemble in which the featured notes are blueberry jam, violets and wilted roses, tobacco, undergrowth and Sichuan pepper. On the palate, we find a vigorous wine, with tannins clearly present but very fine, and a smoothness which seems to caress the palate most elegantly.
