Farnese is Italy's Winery of the Year 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2020 according to wine critic Luca Maroni. In general, it is almost unbelievable what constant qualities come from this winery. It is completely independent of the region, as it is involved in many growing areas in southern Italy. At Farnese/Fantini, the taste is very close to what is happening at the moment, plus there is perfect winemaking and spotlessly clean work in the cellar.

But now it's all about one of our very best racers in the range, the Zolla Primitivo di Manduria. It comes from the particularly appreciated Manduria growing zone, which is the only area with the DOP status for Primitivo, as the wines growing here have become known for particularly high-quality and concentrated wine.

The Zolla Primitivo shows a dark ruby ​​red color with a violet shimmer on the edge when young. In the bouquet it convinces with its juicy and intense fruit, reminiscent of black cherries and ripe blackberries, plus a delicate note of cocoa and some vanilla. Very charming! On the palate it is emphatically opulent, intense, as friends of this type of wine wish, the fruitiness dominates, the barely noticeable tannins remain in the background. He really fills his mouth. So must Primitivo!
