Fantini Edizione Cinque Autoctoni
Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera, Primitivo, & Negroamaro. Very deep garnet red. Intense and persistent, with notes of cherry, blackcurrant, herbs, cinnamon, cloves, cocoa, licorice and finally a hint of minerality. Great structure, good balance between alcohol and freshness, velvety tannins, and a long finish; ready to drink but can be cellared. Fantini Group’s flagship red confirms itself as a timeless icon of style and elegance.
Edizione Cinque Autoctoni is considered to be a non-vintage wine because the grapes are sourced from two regions. As such, the winery releases this wine in Editions or Edizione.
“The goal of the winery is to produce wines of excellent value and quality that can be enjoyed by all wine aficionados.”
