Fontana Quinta de Quercus


The Fontana estates are located in Uclés, the most Northern tip of Castile region, an area known for both its fresh, aromatic whites as well as outstanding reds from the Tempranillo grape.  At an altitude of 700-900 meters, the wines of Uclés show the purity and freshness typical of the North with the intensity and ripe, velvety tannins of the Mediterranean.  Fontana manages its estates sustainably and as integrated ecosystems, taking advantage of the low levels of disease in this dry, continental climate.  No pesticides are used, organic manure is the only fertilizer applied and weed control is done by light, superficial tilling.

Grapes: Tempranillo

Alcohol: 14.5%
