Viognier Fojetta 2021 – Cantina Gaffino
Wine obtained from the vinification of our best Viognier; to enhance the aromas we choose to work the grapes at low temperatures, that allow us to respect the natural freshness and balance of this grape.
Fojetta was the name given for the lead unit of measurement from 1/2 litre during the pontifical mandate of Papa Sisto V; it was used to indicate the sale of wine in Roman taverns in 1/2 litre volumes.

The winery is located in Lazio, a few kilometers from southern Rome, and covers an area of 32 hectares, of which 28 are planted with vines.
“We are fortunate to have all the characteristics to give the vine and its fruit all that is necessary to ensure healthy and balanced growth: geographical position, origin of the volcanic soils, the right exposure and an altitude above sea level.
Our story is a family story. A story where wine is a love project that draws its strength and its foundations from the work and passion of the people who have dedicated themselves to it for three generations.
In our vineyards only the vines that best adapt to the climate and soil of this area are grown. The grapes are selected on the plant and harvested at their moment of correct ripeness. The different varieties are thus processed and kept separate by variety throughout the winemaking process.
The attention we put in the vineyards and the selection of the grapes allows us to obtain high quality grapes that do not require particular treatments in winemaking.”
The white grape synonymous with the France, northern Rhône, Viognier also leads a dual life and is also found blended with Syrah in red wines both at home and abroad. On its own, Viognier produces aromatic white wines with pronounced stonefruit aromas (apricots and peaches are often cited) alongside a full-bodied and often textural palate. It is susceptible to high alcohol levels and low levels of freshening acidty.
