Biancospino Fonterenza, orange wine, natural wine, low sulphur wine. It is an orange wine made from Trebbiano. It has a deep orangey marmalade colour from several weeks with the skins and the aromas are intense and vibrant. This is an orange wine more to the extreme end of the style, very savoury, spicy and rich with intense ginger and spices, mature confit fruit and a long length, the bottle will do a table fo 4 people very well indeed.

Fonterenza was founded by two twin sisters Margherita and Francesca Padovani in 1999 who had a life-long dream to make wine. They started out with just 1.5 hectares which has now grown to 4.2 hectares, though still tiny in wine terms. Keeping production small though means that these two sisters make truly beautiful wines. Their natural vineyard site lies on clay-limestone soils 420 metres above sea level and all the work is done according to biodynamic principles. In good years they use no sulphur at all and the wines often have that lovely vibrancy and life of wine that is unveiled from sulphur.


1Reviews For Biancospino Fonterenza 2014 (Orange Wine)

  1. How good is this wine?


    Having a dryer 'oaky' finish compared to Pheasants Tears; the Biancospino Fonterenza 2016 (Orange Wine) was very easy to drink on its own and it feels light and clean to drink. We enjoyed it with a blue cheese and roast/pickled beetroot starter. Went nicely and to be honest every drop feels quality. Not really in your face or challenging; more a subtle, intelligent companion.
