This wine is a blend of the best fruit, from the best vineyards that Farnesse have. 33% Montepulciano, 30% Primitivo, 25% Sangiovese, 7% Negroamaro & 5% Malvasia The Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes are from the Abruzzi while the Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera are grown in Southern Puglia. This is a massive wine – in flavour and structure. Super concentrated and ultra luscious with ripe fruits being balanced by powdery tannins and a long finish.
NZIWS 2020 (Edition 19)
"Dense purple crimson with an enticing fragrance and ripe, sumptuous, super-charged flavours of blackberries and cream with star anise, cake spices, nut chocolate, mocha, currants and prunes with a savoury juicy finish."
99/100 & Best Italian Red, Luca Maroni (Edition 19)
"It’s a radiant force of fruit…balanced in acid, softness and tannins, of a suppleness and force that is simply phenomenal…an absolute masterwork of nature, technique, humanity and pure passion."
