Fernanda Cappello

This 130 hectare estate is situated at Sequals at the foot of the Friulian hills in north east Italy. The vines are planted on very gravelly, mineral soil between the Cellina and Meduna rivers in their own micro climate where the Tramontina wind keeps the grapes healthy. The Dolomites form a dramatic backdrop to the vineyards.

The estate is run by third generation Fernanda Cappello who gave up a career in architecture to make wine full time along with her son Nicola Bedendo. There is now a brand new winery and wine bar and the wines are made to exacting technical standards, and great care is taken with regard to the environment. Solar panels mean that the winery is self-sufficient for power, everything possible is recycled and rare breeds of bird can be found in the vineyards. The white wines are aromatic and crisp; the reds have lovely fresh fruit.

Vintage guide

A dry winter followed by a hot summer has certainly affected yields in 2022, but the quality looks excellent across the country. Small but perfectly formed seems to sum up the 2021 vintage here. Across most of the country the 2020 vintage is looking very good indeed with ripe fruit and lovely aromatics. A classic if not straight forward vintage 2019 has delivered some excellent wines but in smaller quantity. Overall, the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The Northeast, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields were a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and a later heatwave nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ reduced yields, but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country.
