Fasoli Gino Estate
Wines that are good and good for the planet
Over the years more and more wine lovers have been looking for sustainably produced organic wines, so it has become my mission to find the best and bring them to you. That is why I am so excited to share Fasoli Gino Estate wines with all my friends.
Located in the prestigious Valpollicella wine region in northeastern Italy, the Fasoli Gino Estate is the producer of the glorious Alteo, a classic, yet very special, Amarone wine. What makes this wine so special? For me it's the marriage of big bold heat (high alcohol 17%) and an almost velvety smoothness that makes you want to lean back and slowly meditate over the bouquet. The secret behind this unique wine experience is a process of wine making called “appassimento” which employs a method of partially drying the grapes before pressing. They have boldly applied this technique to merlot and pinot nero and the results are astounding!
As far as big reds go, I love Veneto wines and Fasoli Gino is my top pick for this region.
