"Best Wines Of Italy"
SHIPPING NOW

Sumptuous, silky and simply delicious...

The 2014 Fantini Edizione Cinque Autoctoni 16th Release is a kaleidoscope of indigenous grapes from the Abruzzo and Puglia regions of Italy. It is a delicious blend of Montepulciano, Primitivo, Sangiovese, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, which come together for one of the best blends we've ever tasted.

Plush fruit, balanced acidity and stunning texture...that's just the beginning of what you can expect.

Ripe black and blue fruits, dark currant, cinnamon, cloves, cocoa, and a touch of oak spice. Modern-style for Italy, but very much Old World in its delivery, flavors of crème de cassis, blueberry puree, and espresso melt on your palate.

Although definitively Italian in style and flair, it is reminiscent of California's "The Prisoner" - approachable fruit and layers of depth. What separates it though is its rustic and unmistakeable Italian charm.

Enjoy this red like you would your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon. No need to wait, crack open this beauty and enjoy now and over the next five years.

With what you say?

Grilled burgers, steak or a wedge of hard cheese.

Luca Maroni, the Robert Parker of Italy, ranked this beauty among the "Best Red Wines Of Italy" and gave it a staggering 99 points.

Once you take a sip, we're certain you'll agree!

LUCA MARONI

99 / 100

"BEST WINES OF ITALY"

"Absolute violaceous darkness. A wine of maximum consistency, at the same time of perfect harmony and silkiness. Seductive acidity and rich tannin wrap polished fruit from native grapes. Ethereal, it has pure voluptuous dark berry, blackberry and blueberry fruit with subtle vanilla that blends in this archetypal wine."
