"Jesús Cantarero produces wines showing the purity and freshness typical of the appellation."
The soils in Castilla-La Mancha are very homogenous throughout the region and tends to be flat. This wine region represents a vast expanse - the central Iberian plateau. The soils are based on red sandy clay, rich in limestone and chalk, but poor in organic material. The best vineyards are those with the highest limestone and chalk content in the sub-soil.
A Passionate Lineage
Bodegas Fontana is a family business owned by the Cantarero Morales for over 30 years. This estate has been a major contributor in bringing about changes in the area. Their willingness for higher quality and modernisation helped giving recognition for Ucles as a new ‘Designation of Origin’. Jesús Cantarero aims to produce authentic, contemporary wines of great purity and freshness. In order to reach this goal, the vines are organically grown, taking advantage of the low levels of disease in this dry, continental climate. No pesticides are used, organic manure is the only fertilizer applied.
