The wines from Abruzzo became famous in the 16th century, thanks to Princess Margaret of Austria. Margaret of Austria and her husband Prince Farnese began producing wines of very high quality that were that were enjoyed at feasts all over Europe. Farnese has made sure that these wines from Abruzzo have kept their excellent reputation throughout the years with Fantini becoming the most recent example of Farnese’s dedication to producing high quality wines.
Fantini (by Farnese) wines are a reflection of the colors of Abruzzo, painting wonderful landscapes of taste and living for the love of the endless vineyards that are protected by Mount Majella. The vineyards are located on the hillside and stretch from the sea to a soaring 9,843 feet. The vineyards enjoy optimum exposure and an excellent microclimate which explains why the grapes grow so well in this area.
Fantini employs the most advanced technology as it is absolutely necessary to (enable the features of the grapes to be transferred intact to the bottle). It is Farnese’s belief that excessive enthusiasm while working in the vineyards is pointless if the winery is unable to maintain certain standards when bottling. In the winery’s words, “We believe we cannot produce a great wine without constant supervision on behalf of expert winemakers which is the reason why in each vintage six successful winemakers live in perfect harmony with the grapes that arrive at the winery and are turned into great wines.”
