Fontanavecchia Facetus is a white with a singular and characteristic personality, straw yellow in color. The nose reveals a large bouquet dominated by typically varietal aromas, with a pleasant smoky note. On the palate it is fresh, with good acidity and excellent taste-olfactory persistence. Perfect in combination with red meats, game and aged cheeses.

Exciting, but certainly not for evryone
This is a fascinating wine made with floral Falanghina, but also macerated on its skins and submitted to oxidative vinification. It is also nearly 10 years old, which makes it an oddity, but very welcome one. The skin contact gives it tannins, very much like a red. The result is delicious, with a butterscotch edge to the floral and peachy fruit, and herbal and mushroomy nuances. It is intense but never overwhelming. It also has a very long and complex aftertaste.
