Farnese Fantini Edizione Cinque Autoctoni

Farnese Fantini Edizione Cinque Autoctoni

This wine breaks all the rules and sources five different varietals from two different regions of Italy - Abruzzo and Puglia. It produces an extremely intense, luscious, round and full bodied red that stands up nicely along side Italian wines of much higher prices.
Winemaker Notes
33% Montepulciano, 25% Sangiovese, 5% Malvasia Nera, 30% Primitivo, & 7% Negroamaro. Very deep garnet, with an extremely intense and persistent bouquet reminiscent of cherries and plums, ripe currant, tobacco and toasted notes. On the palate, the wine is luscious, round and full-bodied, rich in sweet tannins, velvet textured and extremely persistent, with a long finish of spices, vanilla and chocolate.
