About Fonterenza Pettitrosso Vino Rosso

Twin sisters Margherita and Francesca Padovani founded Fonterenza in 1997 on a farm owned by their parents since the 1970s, where the family used to vacation from Milan. The daughters fell head over heels with the property as adults and started planting vines in 1999. The estate is now at 4 hectares of high-altitude Sangiovese, surrounded by woods and olive groves. Of their vines, only 1 hectare is used for their Brunello di Montalcino; the rest goes into their Rosso di Montalcino and a younger-vine, stainless steel version called Pettirosso. The farming has been organic from the beginning, and the sisters, who do everything themselves, now work biodynamically. The cellar work is as minimal as possible. Fermentations are natural in large, mainly Slavonian oak casks; use of sulfur is minimal; aging takes place in a mix of botti, tonneaux, and barriques. They make so little wine, so carefully and beautifully, under the radar of reviewers, collectors and tourists; with or without renown, Francesca and Margherita are firmly committed to their individual path in their famous appellation.

90% Sangiovese/10% Ciliegiolo. Sourced from the same terroir as the whites: old, organically farmed vines on the volcanic soils of Mt Amiata. The varieties are hand-harvested, destemmed, gently pressed, and co-fermented spontaneously with a 13-day maceration. The wine is aged in a large steel tank for 11 months before being bottled unfiltered. Classified simply as a Vino Rosso, Pettirosso is named for the “red-breasted” finches inhabiting the vineyard and was first bottled in 2011, as the Padovani sisters’ version of a vin de soif (the vintage is found as a lot number in tiny print on the bottom right of label).
