Fantini by Farnese wines are a reflection of the colors of Abruzzo, painting wonderful landscapes of taste and living for the love of the endless vineyards protected by Mount Majella’s motherly roundness. One can see them sliding down from the hills to the sea, seeking an optimum exposure and enjoying an excellent microclimate that the whole of Europe envies us. This is the reason why the fruits of this land grow so well and age even better. The most advanced technology is absolutely necessary to enable the features of their grapes to be transferred intact to the bottle. Maniacal attitudes while working in the vineyards are pointless if we are unable to maintain certain standards when bottling. At Farnese they believe we cannot produce a great wine without constant supervision on behalf of expert winemakers which is the reason why in each vintage 6 successful winemakers live in perfect harmony with the grapes that arrive at the winery and are turned into great wines.
