Located in the rugged Adriatic region of Abruzzo, Cristiana Tiberio’s 30 ha estate has fast gained a reputation for her unapologetic take on what the wines of her region should be. Working with very old Trebbiano Abruzzese vines and with the indigenous varieties of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Pecorino, she has made it her mission to craft wines that display real purity and elegance with a very distinct character. The focus here is on combining indigenous varieties and unique terroir with state-of-the-art winemaking. The result is some of the purest and long-lived wines in the region – a future Italian icon.
“Fonte Canale is produced from just 736 individually selected vines within a single. These vines are all exceptionally old, around 80 years of age,producing immensely concentrated wine with crystalline purity, delightful tension, and laser-like acidity. A luminous wine, very mineral, with green apple, apricot, tangerine and lemon peel. Nuances of white flowers and anise and long finish with harmonious minerality”. Armit Winesmore
