The Fortana wine is certainly the oldest and most traditional amongst the wines of the plains. Moderately alcoholic, fresh, crisp, fruity, slightly sweet and easy to match with cured meats and cheeses. Unfortunately, the production of this typical wine of Parma is limited and insufficient to meet demand: this makes it even more rare and valuable. For some authorities, use of the name “Fortana” could come from the “strength” and vigour of the vine as well as from its natural inclination to prefer strong, clayey soil.
Fortana wine is, unquestionably, the oldest and most traditional among the wines of the Po valley plain; a wine that has all the requirements to meet the tastes of the modern consumer. Moderately alcoholic, fresh and sparkling, with characteristic fruitiness, slightly sweet, a happy marriage with seasoned deli meats and cheese.
