Fantinel


Feel the Emotion



Once Upon a Time...



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.



Fantinel - The Excellence



Love is a Canvas Furnished by Nature and Embroidered by Imagination



Wine is an ancient feeling, a work of art making the world better. It is a mosaic of emotions, a masterpiece made up of precious stones wisely laid down, one next to the other, with genius, creativity and inventiveness. But a good creator knows that every artistic form is always born from the respectful celebration of the original Creation.



Honouring the land is the first vocation of Fantinel. A vocation having its pulsating heart in Tauriano, near the ancient village of Spilimbergo, town of culture famous all around the world for its prestigious Mosaic School. Here stands an elegant winery, dealing with the management of over 300 hectares of vineyards divided into the renowned Grave, Prosecco and Collio DOC zones.



Unique terroirs, privileged areas with microclimates ideal for the best maturation of the fruits and the highest expression of each vine variety, especially the valuable indigenous grapes. From these authentic treasure chests containing rare gifts Fantinel’s peculiar concept is coined: a viti-culture meaning a real culture of grape-growing. Because only a vine that grows according to natural rhythms, on the basis of the respect of the plant vegetative cycle and balance, can give birth to rich fruits and, naturally, to majestic wines: harmonious pictures radiating sun light, giving off the unlimited colours of the land.



Fantinel - Feel The Emotion



Passion, Tradition, Innovation



Passion


For over four decades, passion has been the driving force of Fantinel, a group of technicians and professionals who work every day with diligence and enthusiasm to create a range of wines able to offer strong emotions that are imprinted in the memory.


Tradition


A close bond with the origins, roots sunk into the ground from which the sap is taken to grow with energy. In Fantinel philosophy everything begins from that, from the ancestral wisdom of the Friulian man who dedicates himself to work his land and takes care with particular affection of the rare native grapes of the region, following the times set by nature. As an expert vine grower, he chooses the best bunches with the utmost attention; as a precise winemaker he takes care of the vinification of each product.


Innovation


The Friulian man is also one who tenaciously aims at continuous improvement, who can enhance his expertise and broaden his horizons. The Fantinel concept of wine-making also includes the investments in cutting-edge technological solutions able to bolster every single step of the production process with an environmentally sustainable approach. From the revolutionary fertilisation-irrigation system to the clonal selections in laboratory, from the advanced system of thermoregulation of steel tanks to the immense propriety of precious wood barrels.


Tenuta Sant' Helena



Rare microclimate, focused clonal research and careful selection of the best grapes and peculiar enhancement of Friulian indigenous vine varieties create a limited production which embraces the special characteristics of the typical Collio vineyards. They are the whites and reds of the Sant’Helena line, a superior expression of the quality of Fantinel wines.



Within the gorgeous frame of the vineyards in Vencò-Dolegna del Collio, a few steps from the boundary with Slovenia, Tenuta Sant’Helena stands out. The mild climate, provided by the pro- tection of the Julian Alps northwards and the openness to the Adriatic sea southwards and the fertile soil made up of sandstone marls from Eocene origin create a magnificent environment for grape growing. “Ponca” is, in the Friulian language, the name of this superb terroir. It represents the fundamental starting point from which particular production styles are developed, such as the cold maceration of white grapes, through a short contact with the skins, and a light raisining of red grapes, that are enriched with structure and personality. This is how wines with an intriguing aromatic set, a robust and embracing body and astonishing evolution potentialities are created.


Borgo Tesis



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.


Spumanti



Strong territorial connotations expressed with sophisticated originality. Born from absolute quality grapes and super-selected vines, Fantinel Spumanti are offered in all their elegance of persistent perlage, intense aromas and tempting flavours which make them perfect for special occasions.



Celebrating the excellence of Friulian Spumante. This is the dream Fantinel family has been nur- turing for decades leading the winery to be consecrated as one of the most important sparkling wine companies in the region, especially thanks to a total control on the whole production chain. This project was chosen for the estate-owned land in Tauriano di Spilimbergo in Friuli Grave terri- tory, where the stony surface and the pronounced temperature differences between night and day allow the ideal conditions to grow grapes for the sparkling process. Lively, eclectic, always with a refined style, Fantinel Spumanti can ignite the most impetuous and engrossing sensations.


Grappa



The secrets enshrined for generations by Friulian spirit traditions have now been rediscovered and renewed by Fantinel excellence. Fantinel Grappas represent ancient values summarized in a modern way in the intense, polished and lively flavour of unique bodies and aromas.



The pomaces of Verduzzo Friulano di Ramandolo and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, flagship indigenous vine varieties of Friuli Venezia Giulia, are the basis for the production of Fantinel Grappas. From the meticulous selection of the company-owned pomace, an extremely accurate distillation process is activated, enhancing an ancient knowledge in a modern version. The derived products are grappas featuring extraordinary fineness and prestige, multifaceted in their capacity of conveying multiple emotions, powerful projections of an inimitable land.
