Production Notes

Grapes are handpicked and undergo a careful selection in the winery. After selection, the berries are crushed and destemmed. The must is kept in contact with the skins during a short cold maceration. After the static clarification, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16-18°C. After 3 months fining on lees, the base wine is fermented in small stainless steel pressure tanks (prise de mousse) following the Charmat method.

Producer Information

The Fantini group was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim of producing top-quality wine from Abruzzo. The enterprise was so successful that the group expanded further south in Italy and its islands. Today the Fantini group includes Cantina Diomede, Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Tufarello, Zabù and Cantina Atzei, among others. Acclaimed winemaker and consultant Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.

Fantini is their flagship winery, producing wines from vineyards based in the northern part of Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. The Calalenta Pecorino is wonderfully balanced, with both a soft texture and vibrant freshness on the finish. Grapes for this hail from west and southwest-facing vineyards around the town of Ortona, on the Adriatic coast in Abruzzo, planted on calcareous clay soils.
