Montepulciano and more from between the peaks of the Apennines and the breeze of the Adriatic

From a small group of friends in 1994 with a commitment to artisan growers and a hands-on approach, the Fantini group has become one of the largest wine producing associations in Italy, all while never stepping away from its boutique origins. The key is the partnerships with small family farms that have been in the area for generations, and the fostering of evolution and improvement with the families for ever-greater quality. Fantini has also always worked on an unwritten policy to promote regions that might previously have lived under the radar. This brings quiet tradition onto the world stage, and the opportunity to try wines in Australia that previously would only have been available locally.

Environmental works are important to the group, with weather monitoring units installed in vineyards to pinpoint times of need and minimize intervention and a photovoltaic system on the roof of the Ortona winery. The Pecorino grapes in Punta Aderci and Ripari di Giobbe, plus the 35 hectares at Cantalupo in the heart of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOCG are now all organically managed.
