The Farnese group was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim to produce top quality wine from Abruzzo. The enterprise was so successful that the group expanded further to Southern Italy & Sicily. They shepherd their winemaking process through to ensure they produce wines of great quality, varietal character, & value. Fantini is their flagship winery producing wines from vineyards based in the northern part of Abruzzo where ripeness & freshness harmonize in their wines. All the wines made from Montepulciano have the hallmark color & intensity of the Sangiovese grape but with a balance & accessibility that is often lacking in wines from this region. A pleasant & easy drinking wine with captivating aromas of red & black cherry & other ripe red berry fruits. This wine is soft & fruity with Maraschino cherry & plum flavor characters laced with a touch of spice. A well-balanced & medium bodied red, it provides good length in a dry. lingering finish.
