About the Producer

The Fantini Group has its head office in Castello Caldora, near Ortona, a coastal town in the Province of Chieti, Abruzzo.

Established in 1994, it soon became the leading wine producer in Abruzzo and Southern Italy, both in terms of volumes (24 million bottles) and quality. From the start the company attracted the attention of the industry’s main experts due to its modern entrepreneurial approach, strict quality standards and quick commercial penetration. 18 talented winemakers, all with international experience, produce high quality wines from six different regions in Central and Southern Italy: Abruzzo, Tuscany, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia and Sicily. The company has achieved worldwide recognition, as testified by the many acknowledgements received from wine critics, wine guides and in major international wine contests.

Farnese was named “Best Italian Producer” in 2016, 2017 and 2019 by a prominent Italian wine guide, Luca Maroni’s “Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani”. It was also declared “2017 Producer of the Year” by the important German wine competition “Mundus Vini” and by Belgian journalist Alain Bloeykens. Furthermore, its red wine “Edizione Cinque Autoctoni” – the company’s flagship – has been “Wine of the Year” for 9 years running. In recent years, over 70 gold medals and international trophies have enriched the company awards list, including its inclusion in the “Wine Spectator Top100”. Recently the company – thanks also to the participation of a large international equity fund – has completed the acquisition of a new cellar in Sardinia (“Atzei”) and in Spain (“Finca Fella”).

Crushing, de-stemming, soft pressing and static settling. The clear must is then fermented at a temperature of between 12-14°C.

Tasting Notes

Fantini Pinot Grigio is straw yellow with golden highlights. The linear elegance of Pinot Grigio is given unique Sicilian brightness and solar exuberance with measured, small additions of Chardonnay and Grillo. This results, on the nose, in a wine that has complex, fruity and herbal aromas with clear hints of vanilla and nutmeg. On the palate, intense nuances of peach, grapefruit, lemon-lime as well as mineral flavours are discernible as well as a distinctive minerality. It displays medium body with a round and a pleasant mouthfeel, good balance; the finish is long, clean, spicy yet delicate.


Analysis
