Why we love it
Foxi is a “frizzante”, slightly sparkling, white wine obtained from 100% Trebbiano Romagnolo grapes.
To obtain Foxi, the grapes are harvested when the acidity is still high to make a fresh, refreshing wine. The result is a slightly sparkling white wine with an intense floral and mineral nose with notes of apple and dried fruit.
Foxi is the perfect accompaniment to fresh and boiled vegetables, fresh and lightly aged cheeses, fish appetizers, mixed fried food and omelettes.
The label was commissioned to a local painter and it represent the wine personality... sparkly
The artisan who made it
We have known Franco and Mario for a few years now, we came across them in a blind tasting of Lambrusco and fell in love with theirs. We rung and arranged to see their farm, their vineyards, and it was like we have known each other for ever.
They introduced themselves as being farmers before being winemakers, they have the utmost care for their vineyards and orchards, they work tirelessly, they consider themselves part of the nature, their environment, so everything is done keeping that well in mind.
Their winery, Fondo Bozzole, is located in the in the Oltre Po Mantovano, in the only Lambrusco DOC appellation outside Emilia Romagna. With a very small production, the winery is run just by them, each wine is unique and special, each wine is a drinking experience.
