Drink now through 2030. Decant 1 hour before serving.

This powerful Italian red is crafted from the Abruzzo region’s iconic and namesake black variety, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand, sorted manually twice and macerated on the skins for 25 days. Following vinification the young wine is then matured in oak barrels for up to 24 months to add polish and extra complexity.

On the nose there are evocative notes of black cherry, pepper, licorice and sweet baking spice while the first sip reveals a well-rounded texture, full body and long-lasting dark fruit flavours. The bold character and well-built structure makes this a great partner for red meat dishes including barbecued ribs, steak and hearty ragu sauces served with fresh pasta.

Farnese takes its name from Ottavio Farnese, the 16th century Duke of Palma and husband of Princess Margaret of Austria, who together with his wife was a key figure in Abuzzo’s viticultural history. The couple planted vines on their land in the region and began to produce exceptional wines that were drunk at many of the most splendid courts in Europe. Today the Farnese group continues that legacy by creating delicious wines from some of Abruzzo’s finest vineyards.
