The 2015 Villa Fidelia Rosso is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in barrique for 12 months. This is a sun-drenched and powerful wine (with a noticeable 15% alcoholic content) that delivers rich plummy fruit and thick textural layers. Some 30,000 bottles were released.

Sportoletti is located in an area that is off the beaten wine trail, between the Umbrian art, religious and cultural towns of Spello and Assisi.

A blend of equal parts Grechetto and Chardonnay, the 2016 Villa Fidelia Bianco is a smooth and silky white blend to pair with the exotic flavors of Thai or Vietnamese cuisine. The wine is fermented and aged in oak to add spice and toasted nut at the back of orchard fruit and apricot. This estate started working with the celebrated Consulting Enologist (and fellow Umbrian winemaker) Riccardo Cotarella in 1998. Some 20,000 bottles were made.
