Fondo del Sole
Italian Terroir of the Sun
Gianpaolo Busso, The Wine Angel
The brand Fondo del Sole is the result of a collaboration between the Buoso brothers – Gian Paolo and Valeriano – and Salvo Ferraro, who has the aim of bringing the traditional taste of Italian wines to an international audience. In Italian rural culture, the word FONDO is used to mark a delimited plot of land selected for its ability to produce outstanding grapes (the translation for this in French is “Clos”). SOLE means the sun which without it, grapes are unable to mature to the right physiological and sugar ripeness to produce high-quality grapes. Both the right land and the right amount of sun accompanied by the close following of proper vine cultivation and production methods are vital to producing delicious wines.
