Montefalco, Umbria

Fongoli was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Decio Fongoli, who took over some land at the Collina di S.Marco, in the heart of the productive area of Montefalco. Initially it was a farm, focused on the production of oil and wine but also on cattle breeding and various crops.

In the 1940s, Decio's son Angelo made a decisive turn towards quality wine production, bottling the first vintages of Sangrantino, Rosso and Bianco S.Marco.

In 1977, their Sagrantino entered DOC status, and from that moment on, awards began to pour in.

Since 1980, the winery has been run by the third generation of family winegrowers who follow the original approach, proceeding with long ageing in large oak barrels and a vinification process based on the use of indigenous yeasts and spontaneous fermentation, without the addition of sulphur dioxide.

The farm now consists of 35 hectares, 23 of which are vineyards, all biodynamically managed.
