Farnese Cinque Autoctoni 20° Edizione
Hedonistic Southern Italian Beauty
Year after year the Farnese Edizione Cinque Autoctoni constantly amazes 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. 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.
Sensations: his appearance in the glass is a chromatic event of exceptional expressive power. A black purplish that only a maximally concentrated wine, made from grapes fully matured and transformed with pure oenology, rarely succeeds to show off. Qualities that make Edizione Cinque Autoctoni - Farnese Vini the best red wine tasted this year. A wine of maximum native density, that without mole and oxidation, evokes a pure blackberry juice. Rating 99/100. Luca Maroni, lucamaroni.com
"Extra-ordinary blend of 5 territorial wines. Nose of durone and blackberry, with a finish on the tones of licorice, in the mouth salty and dusty tannins, finish on the tones of the undergrowth." Luca Gardini, World #1 Sommelier 2010
