About the wine
Named the best Italian Producer, releasing their first official vintage in 1999, Farnese has made a name for themselves internationally. Dating back to the Renaissance era, the Farnese family's wine could be found on banquet tables for many European courts. And now-a-days, they can be found on many dinner party tables.
Edizione Cinque Autoctoni is unique to Farnese as it is a blend of five indigenous grapes to Italy, giving you a true taste of Southern Italy. 33% Montepulciano, 25% Sangiovese, 30% Primitivo, and 7% Negroamaro, 5% Malvasia Nera. The grapes are harvested from several different regions in Italy, including Abruzzo and Puglia. Farnese created this concept wine to showcase how native Italian grapes can produce a beautiful wine. And due to the grapes being harvested from several locations, Italian wine regulations deem this wine "non-vintage." But with a balanced palate, supple tannins and bold flavour, Edizione ("Editions") is elegant yet structured, the perfect pairing with great company.

"Hefty bottle for a hefty wine... Dark plum, tobacco and bramble on the nose. Very earthy and reminiscent of a top Aussie Shiraz. Definitely heavier bodied wine. Despite this fatness, not jammy or syrupy at all. Cassis, cacao, coffee, liquorice. The 5 native Italian grapes used are blended splendidly into a nectar for the senses. Grippy tannins, yet not overwhelming. Just the right amount of oak accompanies the dark fruit palate. A real renaissance wine." J & R.
