This classic and particularly harmonious wine, is part of the history of Ruby red with garnet tints, bouquet of typical undergrowth fruits and soft and full flavour.
Custodians of the typical features of the Grave area, Borgo Tesis wines reveal the colours, bouquets and aromas of prized grapes. Intense and rich in personality, they reflect the fruitful meeting between passion and technical capacity distinctively characteristic of the Fantinel winery. A wide ground of stones protected northwards by the majestic Dolomites.
At the centre of Friuli Grave, Fantinel vineyards lie as far as the eye can see, encircled by a picturesque natural landscape in an enchanted calm. The research of the highest quality goes along with an eco-sustainable ap- proach that, among the innovative technologies used, includes a centralized fertilisation-irrigation system that both ensures the wines balance and harmony and strongly reduces the impact on environment.
Once upon a time there was a man with a radiant smile who venerated good food so much that it became his reason for living. And in such a joyful parade of pleasure, wine sat on the royal throne. As a restaurateur and hotelier in northern Friuli, Paron Mario soon realized that his mission was to give people emotions with his special love for wine and that, to do it fully, he had to produce wine with his own hands. 1969 was the year when he acquired the first vineyards in the Collio area, the year when the great adventure started. This engaging adventure soon featured his sons Luciano, Gianfranco and Loris as the protagonists.
The three turned their father’s teachings into virtues, learning to touch and feel the soil, follow the time and the flow of the seasons, taste the grapes getting a glimpse of the secret of their little-big miracle. In the following years the family’s land ownership increased and many dreams came true. That small agricultural company today, with the third generation represented by Marco, Stefano and Mariaelena, has become an internationally prestigious winery, ambassador of Friulian winemaking art in the world. But the origins have not been forgotten and, what’s more, the flame of passion is increasingly vivid.
Once upon a time a man, the first hero and author of a fable, wrote the first page signing it with an indelible imprint. Let’s savour this book entitled "Fantinel" ecstatically.
