96 Pts Daniel Thomases - I Vini di Veronelli
"The Villa Fidelia has hints of cherries, flowers, spices and leather. The wine stands out for its brightness and balance, with less persistence in the mid-palate. Overall, the result is a lighter Villa Fidelia, which finds its highest expression relatively early. This wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Maturity: 2012-2018. It is a pleasure to find Sportoletti in the U.S. market. The new vintages are all highly recommended. In addition to this, have an excellent quality/price ratio."
"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet Franc made from six hectares of vineyards at 400 m above sea level, this is one of the estateâs flagship wines. From average 18-year-old vines grown in sandy, shallow soil with remnants of sandstone, this rich and powerful red is macerated for 15-18 with regular pumpover, then aged for 12 months in French-oak barriques."
The Sportoletti family has been passionately dedicated
to producing wine in Umbria for generations. In the
late 1970s, brothers Ernesto and Remo turned their
attention exclusively to winemaking. With great
reverence for the teachings of their father Vittorio,
they began to bottle wines under their own label. From
that point on, they began a long journey in pursuit of
the perfect balance between innovation and tradition,
endeavoring to unleash the full potential of their terroir
- situated on the hills between Spello and Assisi - where
they now own 20 hectares of vineyards from which
they produce an average of 200,000 bottles per year.
In 1998, the company decided to join forces with
the highly esteemed agronomic and oenological
consultant Riccardo Cotarella, thus marking the start
of a highly successful professional collaboration as well
as a valued friendship. They regularly replant their vines
and cultivate them using the spur pruning system and
high density planting. With 5,000 vines per hectare,
they are able to control the number of buds and
consequently the productivity of the vines.
