The Farnese group owns Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti Zabu, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture and Tufarello, among others, but this is their flagship winery. The vineyards are based in the northern part of the Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value.
Grapes for the Cinque Autoctoni are grown in the communes of Colonnella, Ortona, Sava and San Marzano. The Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes are from the Abruzzi while Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera are grown in Southern Puglia. For this reason, the wine is classified as a Vino da Tavola. A deeply coloured, intense and powerful wine that is, according to its creator, Valentino Sciotti, ‘a true taste of Southern Italy’
A bright, deep ruby colour with perfumes of intense fruit character, blackberry and cherry enriched with aromatic herbs, cinnamon, cocoa, liquorice and an interesting mineral note. In the mouth the palate reveals a balanced structure with a lifted, elegant freshness. Soft, supple tannins lead to a long, drawn out finish.
