Details

Fante Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Feudo d'Ugni 2011, Natural wine, Rich Abruzzo Red , savoury and pure, from the untouched slopes of the Majella Mountain. Christiana does it again, the reds are every bit as good as her superb Lama white and unique Cerasuolo. Fante is a big wine, 14.5% abv and loaded with meaty, dark fruit and spice but wow, you can drink it, it doesn't cloy, there is no sickly oak, just freshness and pure flavours, it feels beautiful going down with some roast lamb, Viva Montepulciano, you are one hell of a grape!

There are some wines which just hit you like 'un colpo di fulmine', and Feudo d'Ugni are such wines. It is the purity, the taste of the ground and nature in all its wonderful imperfections. I started looking around the internet to read what others thought and came across a great passage which only an Italian could write. I say only an Italian, because any Englishman would have been panting for breath trying to get this lot out in in one sentence! Italians like long sentences and it sums up this fabulous artisan, farmer and winemaker perfectly.

'In vigna, invece, tocca essere se stessi fino in fondo, bisogna fondersi con l'ambiente, ascoltarlo, capirlo, interpretarlo, mettere da parte l'effimero ed essere lucidi, attenti, rispettosi. Cristiana Galasso è certamente tutto questo, lo si percepisce nell'assaporare i suoi vini, stupendamente concreti e privi di orpelli, montepulciano e trebbiano, rigorosamente, testimoni di un'antica viticoltura abruzzese, terragni ma non privi di quel tocco che solo una donna è in grado di possedere, che sia scultrice, musicista o vignaiuola poco importa, verrà sempre alla luce.'

Which badly translated means.....

'In the vineyard, however, you must be yourself all the way, you have to become one with the environment, listen, understand, interpret, set aside the ephemeral and be lucid, attentive, respectful. Christiana Galasso is certainly all that, you can feel it as you savour her wines, wonderfully firm and devoid of frills, Montepulciano and Trebbiano only, bear witness to an ancient tradition of Abruzzo wine making, earthy but not without the subtlety that only a woman is able to produce, whether she be sculptor, musician or vintner does not matter, it will always come through in what she does.'

Ah the Italians, they love a bit of poetry. The description maybe indulgent, but it describes these superb wines very well indeed. Christiana lives at the foot of the Majella mountains amidst the woods of San Velntino, she works her land alone and produces marvellous wine that brings pleasure every time you open the bottle.
