Tenuta Fontana is an agricultural company which produces and markets high quality wines, made from carefully selected grapes of Campania region, cultivated on Fontana family’s vineyards between “agro-aversano” and “beneventano” area.

Coming from Asprinio vines, Alberata is a white wine aging in terracotta amphora. It has a straw yellow color, intense fragrances, good texture and great freshness.
