Fasilo Gino has its roots in the family farm that Amadio Fasoli founded in 1925 in the lower Illasi valley of northeastern Italy. Amadio planted vines on the property and began to sell wine to local bars and taverns in nearby towns and cities. Today the estate is run by Amadi’s grandson, Matteo Fasoli, who practices organic and biodynamic viticulture on the family’s 20 hectares of vines.
The Alteo Amarone is the Fasilo family’s flagship wine which offers a perfect balance between the power and richness of traditional Amarone and an elegant softness on the palate. Only the best bunches are selected to go into the Alteo and these grapes are left to dry in small wooden boxes for six months to concentrate the flavours and sugars. They are then fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured in oak barrels for at least three years.
The result is a magnificent Amarone which opens with intense aromas of raisins, black pepper, coffee and vanilla. On the palate the texture is rich and soft with a full body, smooth tannins and ripe dark fruit flavours which culminate in a very long finish. This is an ideal wine to serve alongside a special occasion meal of fresh pasta accompanied by a rich tomato sauce or a hearty beef bourguignon or goulash stew.
