Farnese Edizione Cinque Autoctoni (18th Edition)
"the best red wine tasted this year", Luca Maroni
Best Italian Red - Luca Maroni
Famous Italian wine critic, Luca Maroni, has rated this 99 points declaring it his Best Italian Red of Year. It is not the first time Farnese Edizione Cinque Autoctoni has won this accolade as it continues to amaze with its exceptional quality and concentrated power. It's a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese sourced from Abruzzo blended with Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nero from the south of Puglia. Hence the name "Cinque Autoctoni" meaning five native grape varieties It's also a mix of vintages to ensure the best possible wine is included in the blend. Dark and rich cherry, plum, blackberry fruit with savoury spice and oak notes. despite its power it remains light on feet with fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Beautiful. Our favourite Italian red too.
